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 ‘manic’ 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 – MANIC
This week has been so busy and certainly a little manic at times…and I don’t do manic. But no worries because things are going to get much calmer for next week.
The weekend was okay and relatively quiet. I thought that maybe all the neighbours had gone on holiday, but they came back again pretty quick. I live on a housing estate and there is always someone making a noise. If it’s not kids screaming, it’s electric scooters. Or maybe neighbours seeing who can play there music the loudest. There are constant lawnmowers or strimmers, like they are in competition with who can have the shortest grass. The kids around here scream so much, I really don’t remember any of my kids being so constantly noisy or maybe I just blocked it out, like the parents around here must do! Just to add to the manic mayhem, they are working on a block of flats in the next street and are using a circular saw for hours and hours at a time. I wouldn’t mind sitting in my garden and chilling with a drink and book… what a joke!
Then there are the manic bugs. Leave the door or window open and you don’t even have to go outside to get bitten. On the hottest days I managed to gain six bites which all became swollen to the size of small dinner plates.
On Tuesday it was Boo’s birthday and were were able to invite her best friend and Star’s boyfriend and his brother. I did them a lovely lunch and we had the obligatory birthday cake. Too old for party games they just played on the Switch. Even that was manic, I could only manage a couple of hours before I announced it was time for everyone to go. I’m sure they had a good time though, and Boo enjoyed her birthday. She had some lovely presents, and I bought her a drawing tablet so she can do some more graphic designs.
That’s my manic week over. I’m so looking forward to peace and quiet next week. We are off on holiday today! It’s okay, I can announce it because the two eldest will be staying home so I’m not leaving an empty house behind. I was only thinking the other day, the last time we went on holiday with the two eldest they were just a year older than Star and Boo. I guess our family holidays are coming to an end. But that makes this one even more special.
Now it’s over to you. What word or phrase sums up your week this week?

It certainly sounds very noisy where you live at the moment especially with the work on the flats adding to it. Hope you manage to get some quiet on your holiday – so glad that you are able to go and hope you have a wonderful time. Happy belated birthday to Boo – it sounds like she had a good one. #WotW

That does sound manic! I’ve been bitten too. Horrid little creatures! Glad Boo had a good birthday
Happy Birthday, Boo! I’m glad she had a good day, with friends around to celebrate. I can imagine it gets quite noisy. I hadn’t thought of electric scooters adding to the noise level. That would be bugging if they’re going backwards and forwards. Sorry to hear that the bugs love you. They love my husband too, which is good for me as they seem to make a bee line for him. He’s my jam boy! I hope you have a wonderful holiday. I hope the weather is good for you and the views are stunning.
Well, we are glad that the manic mayhem is over and you can enjoy your holiday! Soon, it will be just the 2 of you to enjoy holidays together! That’s why Leisa and I go out now and enjoy our own company whether on holidays or our little day dates. Life is like that, it has it’s seasons. Glad your teenager enjoyed her birthday with friends.
What a busy week.
Ahh! Our neighbours are away and it is bliss! It’s not just the kids locally to you our neighbours kids are so loud and scream so much too. I don’t remember my two ever screaming that much.
I hope your bites are feeling better. The bugs here are unreal, I am sure they’re all supersized. Some of the bees are cotton wool ball size.
It sounds like Boo had a great birthday. I find it strange having people over, especially the kids friends. After a couple of hours I am always ready for them to go.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday. You deserve it! x

Your area does sound pretty noisy and the work on the flats can’t have helped at all. I hope that work is over quickly. Boo’s birthday sounds perfect. It must have been nice to have people over to share it. Also hard work though. I often wonder how long the four of us will go on holiday together #WotW
