Rugby – Our #WOTW 

By | August 18, 2017

It’s an unexpected word to sum up our week today, not a word I’d thought I’d use, being a pre-dominantly footie (well 50% anyway) family. You might have thought my word would be hospital as I had a quite lengthy pre-op on Tuesday and because the first of my rectifying feet operations is on Monday, or Music as D […]

Annoyed – My #WOTW 

By | July 20, 2017

If you regularly read my blogs, you’ll know I’m a “glass half full” J even when my #scarfeet are at their peak of achiness and I’m just worn down by “stuff” but not this week, I’m Annoyed. Extremely annoyed and disappointed in T’s school, which isn’t an ideal way to be during the last week […]

Tired – My #WOTW and 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | July 14, 2017

Oh my one word to sum up our week is easy this week: The children are blooming exhausted as the end of term approaches. D has found it particularly tricky, we’ve had a few tears this week.  Last week was a mega busy one with Proms Week and this week has seen her go off-site with school […]

Music – My #WOTW – and 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | July 7, 2017

It’s been super-easy to choose my one word to sum up our week this week: How could it be anything else? This week has been Proms Week in D’s SN week and it is an all-day, all week event with class performances, music club performances and invitations to local schools to participate. It’s something that […]

Challenges – Our #WOTW 

By | June 29, 2017

I can’t quite believe it’s Friday tomorrow, this week has rocketed by and we’re one week closer to the end of term too, eeek! It’s been a “will it happen, won’t it happen?” time for D’s Sports Day as it was re-arranged from last week as it was too hot and then the forecast for […]

The many Mr Men of you #WOTW

By | June 23, 2017

My one word to sum up this week could have been “warm” because …well, it has been just a “tad” warm hasn’t it? It’s not though, I’ve decided – as it was Fathers Day last weekend – to devote my little piece of the blogging world to my Hubbie and the many ways in which […]

Torn – My #WOTW 

By | June 15, 2017

Torn, as soon as I wrote that word, the tune by Natalie Imbruglia popped into my head.  I LOVE that song, it brings back both good and bad memories of a time when my little family unit had been rocked to its core and we got through it. It’s felt like that kind of week, […]

Singing – My #WOTW

By | June 3, 2017

This week’s one word to sum up our week could be illustrated by a picture, our D: Singing and loving it. This picture was taken at a superstars concert at school, there’s also a video which we’ve played a few times and wanted to burst with pride watching her singing and smiling at the applause […]

The P word(s)

By | May 19, 2017

We’re at the tail end of quite an intense week, this last week.  A week in which I’ve realised just how fast D is growing up but also just how proud (my Word of the Week) I am of her. She’s 13 tomorrow, a teenager, where on earth have the last few years gone?  Regular […]

Calendar – My #WOTW 

By | March 31, 2017

I’ve been wishing March away, waiting for an appointment with my consultant on 30/3, which is silly really because yesterday came and went with me feeling just as unsure. He was very empathetic, very much “we don’t want to put you through any more than necessary” but has referred me onto a colleague because my […]
