Word of the Week

Word of the Week 16/3/18

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:

Yes, I know that that’s two words, but they do really need to go together!

This week Harry Potter has dominated, which has been great. It started with us watching some vlogs of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios with the kids, and we have all been getting excited about going. We’ve spotted that they have interactive wands there that the children are now keen to get as they can then ‘perform magic’, wow!

As you know, the Husband and I had the day together last Friday which we spent holiday shopping and managed to pick up Harry Potter tops for the kids and I (the Husband’s not such a fan!). We had a lovely day, thanks for the anniversary well wishes.

We also managed to pick up a Gryffindor notebook for Little Man which he absolutely adores, especially as Boo already has a few Harry Potter notebooks. As such, he’s taken to writing in it each day (usually about Harry Potter) and I have been amazed by how much his enthusiasm for writing and his ability has come on over the last week or two, it’s lovely to see. Seems it was a well-timed stationery purchase, getting it to him at just the right time as his teacher tells me he’s shown great improvements over this month.

Then of course there have been the films. We started watching them at the weekend and have been continuing with them after school each day. I am enjoying watching them again just as much as the kids are, as they have watched some of them for the first time. Ah, I do love Harry!

All of this has meant that Little Man and Boo have got their wands and cloaks out, and we’ve had to complete online quizzes to check on our Hogwarts house – just so you know, Little Man and the Husband are Gryffindor, Boo is Hufflepuff and I’m Ravenclaw. You needed to know, right?!

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

Please grab the badge, link up and share…
