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 ‘Summer’ 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 – Summer
Last week I was worried about the neighbours getting ready to party, but even though they were loud they stopped before midnight. Yay! But sleep has still been difficult because of the heat…phew! This weekend it’s supposed to be cooler, I’m looking forward to that, but I also hope it’s not the end of the hot weather as the summer holidays begin.
We had a sad start to the holidays with the Little Man in self isolation when his bubble broke. First up he was heartbroken that he was going to miss all the fun things they had planned. Then he got sick, a dry cough and a raging temperature. I was so worried I got him tested with a PCR covid test. The boy who has tested positive for Covid is the Little Man’s best friend who he sat next to at school. Thankfully, the test came back quickly and he was given the all clear. Phew, it was like we had dodged a bullet.
His last few days of the summer term were done online but they had loads of interaction and he enjoyed seeing his teacher and friends on the screen. The end of term party was heart breaking though and the Little Man ended up in tears. He couldn’t go to school but his Dad fetched his school leavers t-shirt and yearbook. He also had an autograph book with no way of collecting autographs.
Summer break has now begun and soon we will be going to the seaside. I want to keep everyone home so we can stay healthy enough to go. If we get pinged now we will be heartbroken. What a strange situation to be in. We are only going to Dorset and have arranged to meet up with family members we’ve not seen for a couple of years now. Other than that we will be keeping to ourselves and just enjoying a change of scenery.
I’ve a million and one things to worry about at home but I’m hoping I can put them to one side just for one week. Fingers crossed.
I’m also hoping we can get the pool filled today. I know we are supposed to be saving water, but if there is rain on the way this weekend then we best get a day or two out of it.
What are your plans this summer?
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
