It’s been so long since I’ve joined in Word of the Week. At the beginning of August I jumped on the Bullet Journal train, setting up something just for blogging as generally my online work diary keeps track of where everyone needs to be. I wanted to refocus my blog, take time for what I enjoy. As I reflected, I realised how much I tracked life through Word of the Week, snapshots which somehow, when joined together, created life.
And so, with getting back on track, here I am (it only took four weeks!).
So, this week is the start of everything coming back together. I have had the best fortnight off work. I cannot remember the last time I had two consecutive weeks. Probably maternity leave. But it was bliss. I had so much time.
But this week the inevitable happened. I had to go back to work. Bleurgh.
And it was rubbish. I got frustrated. I got wound up. And that was just Tuesday.
As is life, it’s turned out fine. It’s just getting back into the routine.
I caught up with a friend, over wine. It had been far too long.
By Friday, I felt like we were winning again.
The children have continued their adventures. After a fortnight with me and him, they’ve loved having time with Grandma and Grampy again.
Somehow whilst the freedom of six weeks is welcomed with open arms, it is a temporary need.
We make the most of it, we love the moments.
The routine though keeps everything on track.
And so, to the hope of next week, and of all being well come the Monday morning school run.
So, of course I’m back joining up with Jocelyn at The Reading Residence, pop over and see what others have captured as their word:
