Word of the Week

Word of the Week 21/7/17

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:

The countdown to the summer is on. The kids break up today, it’s Boo’s last day in KS1 and Little Man’s last day at nursery. I’m off to his leavers’ assembly this morning and he has been counting down to that as he’s excited for me to see it. Apparently Star Wars is involved!

With Little Man’s last day at nursery drawing in, I have also been counting down our last days of just the two of us having fun during the week. I wrote more about it yesterday, but suffice to say that the counting has stopped, those days have ended, so it’s now time to focus on his next big adventure.

As I am now happily going to the gym each week, I have started to pay more attention to the food that I eat in a bid to lose weight and feel healthier which has involved counting calories and paying attention to the nutritional content and macros. It’s funny how I have gone from obliviousness to being very aware of my daily protein intake! I’m enjoying the challenge so far, and for me, as long as I’m enjoying it all’s well so I’m making the most of it for now.

As always, I’m counting pennies, looking at ways to save a little bit more for our Disney break. I’m doing our food shopping at a discount, so now I’m investigating places to buy pet food and bedding at a discount, too, such as Zoo Bio – our guinea pigs are always treated!

I have been counting down the days to my Open University result, and it has finally come in and phew, I passed! The plan now is to enjoy the summer break and then get my head down again from September. Just one more year, I can do this!

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

Please grab the badge, link up and share (Please note it’s a new badge code, so do use this one, thanks!)
