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 ‘heatwave 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 – Heatwave
Wow, it’s been a hot week here in the UK, and it’s set to get hotter. Who wants to bet the weather will take a turn by the time we go on holiday in a couple of weeks! I have never been a fan of hot weather and heatwaves I feel are best spent indoors! Seeing people crammed onto beaches or soaking up the sun do not make me jealous. Take me back twenty years and I’d definitely have joined them though.
We have been enjoying the sunshine by having the pool out in the garden. It’s only the boys that go in now, but they enjoy cooling off and will sit in the water until they get wrinkly.
It’s nice to sit in the garden for a little while, if only to make it feel cooler when you get back into the living room!
I thought Boo was lucky being at school with the air conditioning, but apparently they haven’t had it on because the school can’t afford to run it! So they’ve been sitting there baking with the windows open. I bet the air conditioning will be on next week when the parents visit for the end of year concert.
I’ve noticed that along with this heatwave we’ve had a lot of heated behaviour going on. Maybe a little at home but mostly the neighbours who have had some full on arguments, some quite late into the night. There was one point where we were picking up the phone to call the police when we heard a police car arrive.
I hope you are enjoying the heatwave and finding ways to stay cool. Did you see the super moon on Wednesday night. I woke up at 3am and it was on the roof of a neighbours house!
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?

I started off loving the heat but then after a rubbish nights sleep I was so over it. The last couple of days have been just the right tempreture, not too hot and not too cold.
I did sit out in the garden a little reading my book and it was lovely.
Oh no! That is shocking about Boo’s school. My youngest girls school is an old one and I don’t think they have air conditioning but thankfully they have been doing lessons outside or have been off out on trips. x
I love the sunny weather, but these heatwaves are pants! And my hayfever is ridiculous.
We’ve been sitting out in the garden come the evening when it cools down, and like you, we get the pool out.
Your neighbours sound entertaining hehe! The only thing that rows around here is sheep! xx
It has been very hot hasn’t it? It is nice when it’s a little cooler in the garden and you can enjoy time outside, especially when you have the pool out too! Hope you were ok with this week and that Boo’s school at least had the air con on for this week! #WotW
