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 ‘Covid’ 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

MY WORD OF THE WEEK – Covid
Oh my we are not having a good start to the year, things can only get better! So, now we have Covid in the house. Last Friday, Eldest Son and Boo tested positive on lateral flow tests and later on PCR tests. Then Eldest Daughter tested positive on a PCR despite having a negative one on Friday and several negative lateral flow tests. All of us except Star have Covid symptoms. All of us but the Little Man (too young) and Boo are vaccinated. Only Eldest son didn’t have his booster jab.
Boo is now feeling much better and testing negative again, so Star has moved back into her bedroom. Eldest son is still coughing all night long, but his fever has dropped. He never lost his sense of taste and smell. Boo, suffered mostly from fatigue and spent most of four days in bed. She did eat though. The Little Man has more cold/flu symptoms and lost his voice. My Eldest daughter had sickness and loss of taste along with feeling pretty crappy and that’s exactly how I’m feeling now. Last night I had trouble breathing and panicked a little. But, I can also have these symptoms with my chronic condition anyway. It’s so hard to tell what is Covid and what isn’t. My PCR test is negative but I’ve been told to self isolate anyway because of close contact with positive cases.
We’ve had a horrid week and being locked up has been the least of our worries. Freedom day is 24th January, the kid’s have to have negative PCR tests before they are allowed back to school. The school is struggling at the moment and have decided not to stop the mask wearing.
Since having Covid hitting our home we have come across so much confusion and I’m not sure it’s all entirely down to illness. We have been called several times by Track and Trace and had to fill in so much information online. We have been given conflicting advice from mail and on the phone. We have erred on the safe side by testing every day, and not going out. But found that negative lateral flow tests do not exactly mean negative PCR results. We have also discovered a few things about the vaccination. It doesn’t stop you from getting Covid, but it does seem that it’s a lot easier to contract without it. We know that it was brought home from school by Boo, it’s the only logical explanation. But trust me, with Covid, logic seems to go out of the window. I have been told to self isolate, and Graham has been told that he does not need to self isolate. And after all this we know we can still catch Covid again!
May you all stay happy and Covid free!
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week.
