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 ‘celebrations’ 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 – Celebrations
We are now officially six months into the year, yes, 2022 is half way through already! The six month mark is always relevant in our home because it starts with my eldest daughter’s birthday. Then we have a summer of birthdays before the countdown to Christmas. Yes, a family of seven is very busy when it come to celebrations.
My Daughter is 33 this year and she asked me to get her the tackiest cake I could find. Well, I think I did her proud, I bought her a pink cake with a princess tiara decoration. I remember making Boo a cake very similar for her third birthday party! We will be going out for a meal tonight, just the adults, leaving the younger ones at home. They don’t mind, they don’t like going out for meals anyway (unless it’s Mc Donalds.) It feels strange but they are old enough to be left at home alone now, we do it in the day time but it will be the first we’ve done it in the evening.
Next Celebrations will be for Boo’s 15th birthday and school will be over for this year by then. At the moment Boo is the only one going to school which also feels a little strange. I don’t know what we will be doing for Boo’s birthday yet, but we’ll be off on holiday shortly afterwards, and coming home just in time for The Little Man’s 12th birthday! Before they go back to school and college it will be Star’s 17th birthday.
Another thing we are celebrating is getting Star into another college which she will be starting in September. She can’t decide what to do so she’s just going back to redo her GCSEs. She only passed two at school thanks to the Covid disruption. So, once her exams are done I hope she will have some idea about what to do in the future. As I’ve just said, she’s still only 16 at the moment so she’s plenty of time to worry about her future. She’s currently receiving some home education from a great charity that supports sick children.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?

YAY! Bring on the celebrations. Sounds like you are all going to have a lovely summer and I hope it all goes to plan. Lots of birthdays to celebrate. Sounds like you outdid yourself with the cake for your eldest daughter, lol. Have a great one.
Ahh! I saw it was your eldest daughters birthday and thought it’s the start of birthday season for you.
The cake sounds fab and I hope you have a lovely evening tonight.
It always seems crazy to think how quickly our kids grow up. I remember yours when they were really young. My two are turning 15 and 20 over the next few months. Eek!
Congratulations to Star for getting into a new college. Redoing her GCSE’s seem like a great idea. x
It’s almost hard to believe we are already halfway through the year. Sounds like the next six months is a fun time for your family!
