Word of the Week

Word of the Week 5/10/18

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’s been gifts all the way this week.

It was Boo’s 9th birthday on Wednesday so I have been wrapping gifts, enjoying watching her open gifts and then attempting to find homes for the new gifts in her bedroom. She had a great day and was so happy with all of her presents. It really has summed up the week as she’s had a birthday spanning the whole week! She started opening gifts last Friday when she saw my brother and his wife, and then she had her birthday treat over the weekend taking her and her best friend to Build a Bear (yet another gift) and for pizza, and of course she received a gift from her friend. She then had more from her grandparents over the weekend and the trend has continued through the week. She’s done very well!

As well as my daughter, I have been arranging gifts for other people. I have bought and wrapped a present for a friend next week, I have sent an ‘in memory’ rose over to my friend as she has lost her dad, I have planned my sister-in-law’s birthday gifts and we have been chatting about what to get my mother-in-law for her special birthday next month.

And lastly, yes still on gifts, I have started that list off. That ‘C’ word list. I always start jotting down a few things once the kids’ birthdays are both over. There is now a page in my bullet journal devoted to gift ideas, so that I can note things down as and when they occur to me. I might even have bought one or two when I spotted a fab offer on some things that my son wants. I’m not normally this early, but it was a good deal so I couldn’t resist!

So it’s been a week of buying gifts, wrapping gifts, giving gifts and thinking about gifts for me!

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