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 ‘Car Crash’ 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 – Car Crash
It’s been a while, well, nearly three years since our last car crash, but yes, it’s happened again.
This time I wasn’t in the car. Our new(ish) neighbours invited The Little Man to their daughter’s birthday party in a church hall just up the road. Graham took him and he was so excited. I don’t think he’s been invited to a child’s birthday party in a long time. They started out and just as they were going around the island, right by the church, someone pulled out too soon and crashed straight into the side of our car. The Little Man’s side! Thankfully, he wasn’t hurt too bad. He did complain of pain in his foot and neck but there was no visible damage. He still went to the party and had a nice afternoon.
The car is being repaired today, the other guy took full responsibility for the accident, so no issues there.
In other news, the young ones went back to school last week and everything has changed. To say it was a complete car crash is no exaggeration. The Little Man seemed to cope better than Boo but then she ended up in a fracas on the stairs when some bullies picked on her friend. It wouldn’t have happened had the system not changed and they could have used a different staircase, but it’s not allowed anymore.
The Ofsted report was in on the school and the head and so many teachers have just vanished. (Including the Little Man’s mentor.) The school was found to inadequate in so many ways it’s quite shocking. The SEND department came under fire, and so did the system of suspension and detention. So now there is a new reward system for good behaviour and I have no idea what the plans are with the naughty kids. They are also stepping up on attendance. This is no problem with my Little Man who insists on going to school no matter what. But we are already on a formal warning with Boo who suffers from anxiety and school refusal. Thank goodness she only has a year to go. I so wish I hadn’t sent the Little Man there now, he’s got a further four years to go.
Now it’s your turn, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
