My Word This Week

Published on 1 September 2022 at 18:38


Good day to my supporters, I hope you're well? It's been a while since my last Word of the Week and I apologise for that, I am having a bit of a writer's block at present. I'm not afraid to own up to that. It happens. However, I am also harsh on myself, I know I haven't delivered and I'm frustrated by that immensely. I had a great schedule that was working for me, but trying to be positive, I want to get back to it as soon as I possibly can. 


Anyhoo…cracking on with the usual to start these off, with an update on my figures. I reached the 1000 mark of followers on Twitter! Yay! Now at 1,026 I do feel very proud indeed.



My little blog has received 1,532 visitors since April 2021, it's truly remarkable.


And here are my recent biggest hits for what my readers are loving at the moment:



My word this week… 

Is Reconcile. The dictionary meaning; verb 1. restore friendly relations between.

"the king and the archbishop were publicly reconciled"

  1. make (one account) consistent with another, especially by allowing for transactions begun but not yet completed.

"it is not necessary to reconcile the cost accounts to the financial accounts"

Adjusting the way you think about a fact or situation that is opposed to another fact or situation. 


Silent disco 

If you haven't been to a silent disco you are definitely missing out. I attended my 8th one recently and they honestly never let me down. With an extra chance to dance like I own the dance floor and an opportunity to shout my favourite songs out word for word, I achieve the best night out period! You pay a £10 deposit for the headphones, (which you get back at the end of the night) they have switches for your volume and another to click between different djs. There are 3 djs all playing different genres of music. So while you could be dancing away to Whitney Houston your friends might be singing their hearts out to Pulp. 


Highly recommended so go book one today!



My Summer holiday

Me, my daughter and my parents were booked to stay in a lovely hotel in Devon at the beginning of August, but unfortunately my dad took ill and has been in hospital since. Our family holiday was cancelled and I was left with searching very quickly for somewhere me and my daughter could spend the week together. I finally found a stay in a caravan in Morecambe, Lancashire.


Our weather was perfect, we visited museums and the beach alot, we enjoyed swimming on sight most days and even got to meet Eric Morecambe… well his famous statue anyway. It was a lovely girly trip in the end, one we'll remember together.




Ahhh why is it always me? I believe that it is 4 years on the trot now whereby I have been bitten. I have absolutely no idea how or even what by, but when I get bitten I react to whatever it is in an ugly way. I end up being treated with antibiotics most of the time. I feel like the only one sometimes. 


The severity of a bite varies depending on what it is that bit you and sometimes the sensitivity of the person. If you react it's best to keep the area cool, avoid scratching and take an antihistamine.



Trying to relax 

In July my partner and I decided to book one night away in a hotel that boasted a pool and jacuzzi. Sinking into that hot bubbly jacuzzi after a stressful week, hit more notes in me than I can mention. Relaxed after just 5 minutes I was in a whole different place, my mind just emptied and my body felt free of all that tension that had built up. 


The realisation to wind down seems to only hit when you actually do it, and you can read about it until you're blue in the face about how important it is, but it is one hundred percent necessary for your mental wellbeing.
