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 ‘Preparing’ 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 – Preparing
This week I’ve been taking part in Blogtober which means lots and lots of blog posts to prepare! But that’s not the only thing I’ve been preparing.
The Little Man wants his bedroom decorated and we want to get it done October half term, which is only two weeks away. I’ve been preparing by buying paint, wall stickers and even new bed linen. I hope that now we have the tools we can get on with the work.
I’ve also been preparing for the fuel increase that is going to happen. It sounds strange but I’ve made a big withdrawal from my energy supplier and put it into a savings account instead. I’m not sure if my supplier will have trouble as it is one of the bigger companies. I struggled with the fact that withdrawing my excess money would cause them issues, but if the prices do escalate and my provider goes bust, then I’m the one that will suffer. Now, the money is safely stashed away and we should still be able to afford our bills.
Another thing I’ve been preparing for is Christmas! Last year I threw away my old fake Christmas tree as it really was looking grim. I know it’s not so environmentally friendly but I’ve had the tree for 20 years, so I’m not feeling too guilty. I have never had a real tree, I actually prefer a fake one I can put away and use again year after year. I have ordered a new one and I’m hoping it will last me as long. I also have a new window decoration and have even sorted a couple of presents. One I ordered a couple of months ago from the USA and it has only just arrived. I have another overseas order coming so my fingers are crossed.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week? If you are from Blogtober then feel free to join in.
