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 tough 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
Let me take you back in time. Back to the 80s and Billy Ocean’s, When the Going Gets Tough. I remember it from the film ‘The Jewel in the Nile’ but I also remember it as a song on one of my exercise videos a few years later
Back then I would take the (older kids) to bed, come back downstairs, slip into some leggings and t-shirt and pop on an exercise video. A lot of songs that if I hear now I always think back to these exercise, including When the Going Gets Tough, Dancing in the Street and So Macho. But my favourite exercise video of the 90s was Cher’s ‘Hot Dance.’ Boy was it a tough workout! I was so excited to find the entire video on You Tube..
I even remember all the moves 🙂 Way back then I had a figure that would match Cher’s. (Cher is 20 years older than me, so back then I considered her an ‘old lady’ I was so impressed!)
Anyway, I’ve used all this as an excuse to write the truth. This week has been tough for many reasons. I don’t want to go into it all now, but I guess my reminiscing has reminded me that when the going get’s tough the tough get going. So, I’m digging out my ‘virtual’ boxing gloves and fighting all the way.
Now it’s your turn, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
Can I ask you favour? Would you consider nominating me in the 10th Anniversary MAD Blog Awards? I think my blog would fit in the Tween and Teen Influencer category. Thanks so much x
