Word of the Week

Word of the Week 24/8/18

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:

This has been a week of the unexpected.

The Husband was supposed to be off for a few days, but something unexpected cropped up at work and he felt it best to cancel his break and go in. It was unavoidable, but such a shame as we’d all been looking forward to our days together.

This then meant that we were unexpectedly free when my friend Emma called on us for a soft play date, so it was great to make that and watch our kids get very sweaty playing! And the kids are off to the cinema today with their grandparents to see Incredibles 2, which they’re excited about.

They went to the cinema with my mum at the start of the week to see Christopher Robin (which they adored). This was planned and expected, but I didn’t expect my internet to go down for the whole afternoon that they were out, when I’d planned to get a load of work done. This unexpected occurrence led me to spend the afternoon watching Persuasion and writing letters instead of working, so it wasn’t completely unwelcome!

I’ve also had a work project that I proposed progress, which I hadn’t quite expected. It’ll involve some lovely ‘me-time’ and a little craftiness, so watch this space for details on that soon…

Of course the one thing that I absolutely expected was for my nephew to do well in his GCSEs, and with the results out yesterday, he did so well! I knew he would, well done T!

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

Please grab the badge, link up and share…
