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 ‘Free’ 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 – Free
This week I have chosen the word Free mainly because my Little Man is now free from his school and the awful bullies because I have de-registered him.
We have had a lot of problems with the Little Man’s school and this is not the first time I have de-registered him from the same school. I am really kicking myself for allowing him to go there in the first place. He’s free now, but I don’t feel good about it. I’m just looking at it as a little longer summer holiday and keeping my fingers crossed we can find a new school for him next September.
Boo is now free of her mock exams. They seem to be doing them late and have been taking them alongside the year 11s doing their GCSEs. Boo doesn’t seem to think she has done very well which is sad. But she is attending school every day and working really hard. I’m also hoping to enhance her learning with Edplace, an online learning program. Hopefully, she can improve in time to get good GCSE results. At the moment her only interests seem to be music and art.
My Freedom seems to be solely school related, and I guess that’s probably the biggest part of life at the moment. Just a few more weeks and we will be free from school for the summer holidays, no more getting up early, no more school lunches, no more uniform washing and ironing. And I can’t wait!
Now, it’s over to you. What word or phrase sums up your week this week?

I’m glad that your Little Man is now free of the bullies and it sounds like you’ve done the right thing – his school have really been awful at dealing with the bullying. Well done to Boo on attending school everyday and working hard and good luck to her for her mock results. Not long to go now until the summer break. I’m looking forward to it but also feeling a little sad that with Thomas finishing preschool, it marks the end of an era of parenting for me. Hope you have a nice weekend. #WotW
I am so glad you got your son out of that school. It sounds like the best thing for him. I hope you can find him a place in a new school for September.
It sounds like Boo is doing really well at school despite not being that positive about her mocks. My youngest did hers just after the Easter holidays.
I am looking forward to the summer holidays, lie ins and lazy days. I hope! x
Happy for you that the summer holidays seem to be coming even faster and that you will enjoy some more ‘lazy’ days. For the sake of yours and your son’s mental health, I’m glad he’s been pulled out of school. Hope you find a nice one for him for September.
Soooooo happy to hear that you de-registered little man from that school. You must be so relieved. At least you can now have peace of mind that he is safe and happy.
We are looking to the summer hols too! We are ready for a break now. xx
Definitely the correct move in my opinion, I think if my parents did the same I would love to study but instead I ended up hating school.
