Word of the Week #26

It’s Friday, so it’s time to link up with the lovely Jocelyn from The Reading Residence and decide on my Word of the Week #WotW.

This week has been a steady week, Mr Hubby has been in France and my sister in law has been keeping me company.  I have ‘Accomplished‘ quite a few things that were on my to do list.


You know those annoying things that you find you can’t tick off your list, for whatever reasons.  Well, with a prevailing wind and a little help from my friends, some of them have been ticked off!  The main one was a fence for baby’s garden.  We have dogs and so I want Baby’s side of the garden to be fenced off, so she can enjoy it without any furry interruptions!  Cue my wonderful brother in law who has made us a fence!  Tick!

I have been trying to find Baby some Happyland toys at car boots and sales, but without any luck.  She is ready for slightly older toys and I have heard great reports about these.  It has been driving me mad, as any that are advertised are sold before I can respond.  Then by chance I clicked on my personal Facebook and saw some advertised on a local page, which I promptly bought.  Tick!

Baby had another swimming lesson on Tuesday and continues to be ‘accomplished’!  Next week she moves to the Toddler class.  Tick!

Last Friday Baby decided after playing with her new water table in the garden, that after 15 months, she was no longer petrified of the bath and now LOVES it!  Tick!

This one is a big deal to me.  Yesterday, I travelled to London with Baby on my own.  Now, to some people this would be nothing to shout about.  However, I don’t particularly like train travel on my own and adding Baby into the mix was quite daunting.  Then add the complication of having to get a connecting tube and it nearly put me off.  I decided to put on my big girls pants and we did it and we are all back in one piece.  Tick!

I have also managed to be quite productive and have accomplished a fair bit in terms of blog posts.  I am completely up to date with my sponsored posts and reviews.  Tick!

So which word sums up your week?

  27. A fab word to have. I love weeks like this. I currently have one of those mental to-do lists, and I can feel a surge coming on where I want to tick it all off, too! My pair love their Happyland stuff, and it does last well, so hope Baby enjoys it all. And well done on the travel, too – not easy with a little one. Thanks for sharing with #WotW x
