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 ‘windy’ 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 – Windy
It has been so windy this week around here. The trees at the bottom of my garden have been blowing around like crazy. I’ve also noticed how big my neighbours tree is getting as it has popped up behind our shed. I’ve lay in bed at night listening to the wind. We have a nearby block of flats with scaffolding all around and the noise has been annoying. I think of all the weather we have, I dislike wind the most.
It’s not all been bad though. I’ve been tucked up at home feeling warm and cosy. One thing I remember was having to walk against the wind, and not only did it make my journey more difficult, I hated the wind in my ears and would always end up with ear ache. I’ve never been a fan of windy days.
There was one moment this week that the wind had me giggling out loud. When we were at the ballet on Wednesday evening there was one scene where the dancer were still on stage but were giving the image of skating fast, so they used a wind machine to create the effect. It worked well, but it was also really funny, especially the faces of the dancers who were meant to be smiling.
In other news, it’s teacher training day today so no school. I’m planning on playing some games with the kids, board games and computer games. I want us to have a fun day off.
The Little Man had a trip to Birmingham Symphony Hall to see an orchestra…this is the most information I could get out of him, I think he enjoyed it though.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
