Word of the Week

Word of the Week 11/5/18

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:

It has not been a typical week, in several ways, it has been a tad peculiar. Not bad peculiar, just peculiar.

Firstly, what’s with the lovely weather? And over a bank holiday, too? Unheard of! I love the warmer weather and have enjoyed getting outside more that the weather seems to be improving. I have spent a little time gardening, which I always enjoy, and it’s lovely to see how much my garden is springing into life now. This has definitely been a good peculiar!

But I think, as with last week, having everyone home on the Monday, and then having been in a few appointments and catch-ups this week, it has thrown my week out, though all in good ways. It just pops it outside of the ordinary box.

I have largely spent my time working on blog posts and then making final revisions to my last Open University End of Module Assessment. I think this is where most of the peculiar stems from.

If you read my post yesterday, you’ll know that I am now all finished with my degree (assuming I actually pass it) and instead of the relief or euphoria I thought I’d feel, I just feel…well, peculiar. I am waiting for it to sink in, I think. I have our holiday right there on the horizon and I need to do a few bits and bobs before then, so I think my focus might be there and submitting my EMA was just another thing on my pre-holiday to-do list. Maybe it’ll start to sink in after then, maybe I just need to get the actual results for it to feel real. We will see…

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

Please grab the badge, link up and share…
