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 ‘flow’ 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 – Flow
This has been a strange week. I have had some side effects from the treatment last week but on the whole I haven’t been so bad, so I’ve been able to get back into the flow of family life.
It’s week 27, so we are now past the half way point of the year, it’s flowing by quickly, don’t blink, you’ll be looking at Christmas trees. I have to buy a new one this year because we took our 20 year old fake tree to the tip.
We started the week quite normally, Boo and the The Little Man went to school. But no sooner had Boo arrived I got a message to say she was being sent home again because someone in her school bubble had tested positive on a Lateral Flow Covid Test. We got a text on Tuesday evening to say the PCR Covid test had been negative so she was to return to school on Wednesday. Then she was turned home again on Wednesday because someone else had tested positive on a LFT.
(Looking back on that last paragraph, just two years ago it would be just gobbledegook! How strange does that feel?)
The Little Man has also had several children with Covid at his school, but their bubbles are tiny and tight and he hasn’t been in contact with anyone so he’s been able to stay at school. Sadly, swimming lessons have been cancelled though.
I think the schools need to do things differently. I think something like, only those with close contact with the person with a positive lateral flow test should go home, and the rest of the bubble should only go home when the child is proven to be positive with a PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) test done by a lab. This would save lots of children from going home over and over.
What is worrying is the amount of cases in both schools at the moment. At the moment I’m keeping calm and going with the flow…yes, we are doing regular lateral flow tests on the kids too.
The rest of the week has flowed by nicely. My eldest daughter (or ED) had her birthday on Wednesday. It turned out to be a really nice day. We didn’t go out but stayed home and played Mario Golf for most of the afternoon. She’s been a Mario Fan since she was knee high to a grasshopper and has even met the original Mario voice actor. For dinner we we had a take out. But, as we have take out quite regular we wanted something different so she chose Nando’s. She’s the only person in the house who has ever had Nando’s before so it was a treat. I chose a salad with lemon and herb chicken. It was delicious and really filling. We also had a Hot Wing Roulette, which was a selection of 10 wings of different hotness and one was super hot. We got down to the last wing and no-one had tasted the really hot one….so it sat there on the table with everyone refusing to take it.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
