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 ‘England’ 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 – England
You may have heard that the England football team have made it to the Final of the European Cup and will be playing on Sunday. I’m not a big football fan, but I do tend to watch big matches like the Euro’s or the World Cup. I was watching the Denmark match when Christian Eriksen dropped on the pitch and it caused me some distress having been close to situation like that myself. (It was a family member in a hospital foyer, not on a football pitch.) But, I was happy to hear that Christian Eriksen is making a good recovery. It’s certainly been an eventful season, particularly with travel restrictions and reduced crowds.
The England/Denmark match had me on the edge of my seat and I dread to think how I will be feeling on Sunday. I was around when England beat Germany to win the World Cup, but I don’t think I paid that much attention to it as I’d not long been born.
I have to wish England the best of luck on Sunday, and I truly hope that football will be coming home. It’s about time!!
On another note, which fits in nicely with my current read. I’m listening to Mrs England by Stacey Halls. It’s an historical novel with the main character being a children’s nurse originally from my hometown of Birmingham. Historical novels were not my usual go to read, but this is the third book I’ve read from Stacey Halls and the other two were really good so I am hoping this one will be too.

Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
