Hugs #WordOfTheWeek

By | June 27, 2014

It’s been another busy one in the Bluecrisps household, but there has been an underlying theme:

It was lovely to meet bloggers at the BIBs last Friday and yes, there were hugs! I wasn’t sure what to expect, it being the first time I’d been to any blogger event, but it was fab.

I regretted not staying on a bit afterwards but the big hugs when I got home made up for the journey.

T had his induction day at secondary school this week and seemed really positive about it, which was brilliant. He was quite unusually (for T) cuddly too. He will normally accept a hug but very infrequently instigate them. They are very much on his terms.

D has been as cuddly, squeezable hugging as ever. She is extremely demonstrative of her feelings and, if she’s had a good day at school, I’ll practically get knocked down with her enthusiasm for an end-of-school-day hug.

And Mr Bluecrisps…we might not hug much as we used to, but it’s nice when we do.

What word would sum up your week?

What a lovely word-hugs are probably one of my favourite things in life-nothing quite like a good hug 🙂

Love my squeezy hugs with my daughter, and lovely that your son has been generous with his too! Smiler (has SLD&complex health needs) is almost thirteen, but still loves his, problem is he’s getting a bit big to fit on my lap! #WotW
Take care
Lucas

Aww thank you, I know what you mean about the lap getting too small, D still (just about) manages though 🙂

They’ve great, aren’t they, the rush-at-you ones but it’s definitely “brace yourself!” 🙂
