Word of the Week

Word of the Week 20/4/18

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:

With the kids now back to school, there was just one thing on my schedule this week, studying. I had cleared everything else out so that I could concentrate on my final two assignments, really get my head down and get them done. So what have I done? I have procrastinated, of course.

I think I am a little fearful that at this late stage, I might mess everything up that I have worked hard for. And so, I put it off in case it doesn’t go well. Foolish, I realise, and not really like me either.

So I did give myself a push mid-week and am delighted to say that I did manage to get one of them written, hooray! There’s just the big one left to get going on now. I can do it. I know it.

But on the upside, as I know I really should not waste an hour at this stage, my procrastination has been productive and fruitful. I wasn’t just lounging about watching TV!

I have completed my tax return already for this year, which makes me feel smug and is an important task out of the way. I have at last got round to sorting myself a pension again, as I’ve not had one since I gave up full time employment. I have got our currency for our holiday sorted. I have gardened and given the lawn its first mow of the year. I have arranged gifts and cards for several upcoming birthdays. I have ordered new uniform for the kids. I have enjoyed perusing Fashion World for a few last minute clothes for our holiday and managed to get some lovely sandals for Little Man there – thanks for the invitation, Fashion World! And I have written several blog posts so that when the urge to write my assignment strikes I can ignore all work.

I’ll get there. Next week’s word really needs to be ‘assignment’, or ‘done’!

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

Please grab the badge, link up and share…
