Word of the Week

Word of the Week 10/8/18

Hello and welcome to Word of the Week!

If you’re new here, Word of the Week is a nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. You reflect back on the past week and sum it up in one word. Then share your word with us in a blog post, with as little or as much explanation as you like. It’s a fun and friendly linky, so please do be lovely and visit as many of the other blogs as you can and share with them your thoughts on their words and weeks. I do comment on every entry to the linky, and if you add the Word of the Week badge to your post to help spread the ‘word’, I also tweet them out.

My word of the week this week is:

We’ve had a leisurely week, taking things day by day, and it’s been good.

We started the week down in Devon, a mini break that we all adored and wanted to stay on for weeks more! It was nice to just stroll around, play on the beach, eat ice creams and explore gardens and play areas. We all came back feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Then this week we’ve had few things planned in so we have been able to take the days as they have come. We have been over to a friends house, visited my mum, had lunch out, got Boo’s hair cut, and I’ve done my annual clear-out of the kids’ wardrobes and we’ve restocked them up again. In between being sociable and getting tasks completed, we’ve played outside, gardened, watched movies, and played with toys and board games. It’s been good to just do things as and when we felt in the mood to do so.

We also managed to each get a lovely books haul in a charity shop yesterday, so browsing the books was a pleasure and seeing the kids get excited over their choices made me smile. We then spent some time chilling and reading, which was the first time we’ve all done that together as Little Man’s only recently learned how to read. And what can be more leisurely than lounging around reading? It always gets my vote!

What about you? What one word sums up your week best?

Please grab the badge, link up and share…
