Word of the Week

Word of the Week 11/12/15

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:

preparation

It feels as though this week’s flown by in a blur! It’s been full of appointments, and booking loads of meet ups and activities into my planner. Much of it is Christmas-related, and this week has seen me getting my cards out, putting the decorations up, wrapping all of the presents and I’ve also bought in a few extra bits for hosting Christmas.

The kids are getting excited as we saw Santa at the weekend, got the tree up and they went Christmas shopping with the Husband to buy me a few things. They are prepared!

I’ve been getting Little Man prepared for starting nursery in the new year, so we’ve been chatting about that, labelling up his clothes and his settling in sessions are booked in for next week. Fingers crossed this all goes better than when we attempted this in the summer.

I’ve been preparing to see properly! Yes, I got my eyes tested over the weekend and I’ve some new glasses on the way so I’m hoping to have those soon. My eyesight is terrible anyway (I even get free eye tests as I’m so, so short sighted) and I noticed recently that I was squinting a little, so I’m pleased to have that out of the way and am sort of looking forward to me new glasses. ‘Sort of’ because I look forward to a change and improved vision, but know that for the first few days the adjustment will make me feel a bit sick, but I need to work through that bit!

I’ve been preparing for the next couple of weeks to ensure we’re all set to enjoy the festivities. I’ve consulted my planner more than ever this week as it is now getting very busy for the next fortnight, with activities at school, play dates and my own studies dominating it, and then I’ve my blog calendar, too, which is showing no signs of emptying though I’m determined it will as I plan to take a break over the holidays. I will get there, I will!

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

Please grab the badge, link up and share.
