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 those Open University results, isn’t it? I am all about those this week! Now that we’re in the month that they are released, and sometimes they release them early, I am on tenterhooks. I’m utterly convinced that I have messed up, so it’s not a feeling of excitement, but one of doom! I am struggling to concentrate on anything and the waiting is consuming me.
I’m quite sure it’s in a very large part connected to the above wait, but I am still waiting for my normal motivation and productivity to kick in. It has gone astray, so I am waiting patiently for it to return. I have made the most of my time by reading loads and had a lovely catch up with a friend this week at a National Trust site over a cream tea.
I’ve been waiting on a few parcels this week. It is Little Man’s birthday on the very last day of the summer holidays. So whilst it’s a little while away yet, I wanted to get his presents ordered and delivered whilst he was still at school so he wouldn’t see things arriving and try to sneak a peek!
We’ve also been waiting to hear about the kids’ new teachers next year. It’s taken a little longer than normal to find out this year, but we heard a couple of days ago and they went into their new classrooms yesterday and so far, so good. We’ll wait and see how they get on from September.
With the summer holidays just two weeks way now, we are all counting down to those and can’t wait for them to start. The kids have each written a list of things they’d like to do over the summer and I’ve booked in a couple of mini breaks for us. We’ve plenty to do, and I’m also looking forward to that downtime when they can just relax and play without having to rush about.
And then there’s waiting to see how England get on tomorrow. How tense was Tuesday night?! Well, not long to wait for that one, come on England!
What about you? What one word sums up your week best?
