Hello and welcome to the home of Word of the Week. A nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. The idea of the linky is to reflect back on your past week and share it with us. It’s great if you can sum it up in a word or phrase, hence giving us your Word of the Week. My word this week is ‘baby’ and you can read more about that below.
I’m not totally strict on using just a word or phrase. But please try to stick to the theme of summing up your week. There are not too many rules with this linky, just remember to read at least another couple of posts in the link up after adding your link. I will read and comment on all posts and tweet them out for you. I also have a Pinterest board devoted to Word of the Week and I will add posts to Mix Please add the badge below to your post so that others may find us and join in. If you comment or tweet then please use the hashtag #WotW
Word of the Week is open from 6am on Friday Morning to 12 noon on Monday. Plenty of time to join in!
If you are unfamiliar with the Word of the Week linky then please feel free to ask any questions. New linkers are always welcome, we love to hear what you have been up to in the past week.
MY WORD OF THE WEEK – Baby
It’s been quite an exciting week this week, I got to meet my niece’s little baby born just over two weeks ago. I’ll ask her if I can share a photo of him on Sunday.
It was also my eldest brother’s birthday, a big one…he’s now 70! I got to see him on his birthday, I hope he liked his presents, and I will see him again for an outside meal on Saturday…if the weather holds out!
Back to the baby. It’s been a long time since I held a new born baby, I think the last baby was my Godson who is now four years old. I couldn’t believe how tiny he was, and so very perfect. If I had been 20 years younger I don’t think I’d have been able to contain my broodiness. It’s a real strange feeling when you are past that stage, but when you are you really do know.
My great nephew is my brother’s 6th grandchild, two years ago he had his first great grandchild. (He has two older children from a previous marriage) My niece’s new baby is my sister-in-law’s first grandchild, so she’s really thrilled.
I don’t think I will have any grandchildren and I am coming to terms with that now. I would love a new little baby in the family, but it really doesn’t look likely. It was so nice to be able to hold a little baby, they really don’t stay that small for very long.
Quick round up on the rest of the week, it’s been hot, the neighbours have been noisy, the garden is growing and the general mood in the house has been pretty good. Boo has finally sorted out her GCSE options and seems happy with them. We also have a plan to get her back to school full time, but she’s a little less anxious now. Star has finished school and keen to start spending more time with her boyfriend. At the moment their contact is mostly online, but we have promised she can have a day out with him soon. Her Prom has been cancelled, but she’s not really that bothered about it. She’s glad to see the back of her school and is looking forward to college.
The Little man is now supposedly fully healed from his arm accident, but he’s still not using his arm properly The doctor did say it could take up to a year to feel right. He’s on his final run of primary school. It will be strange having my last child finish primary school.
I’m looking forward to a thunderstorm or two, but I hope they pass over quickly.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
