We have a lot to look forward to. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:

This week has been a boring one.....Nothing much has been happening here. I could have chosen bored or dull but would be a boring read...I think I know why it has seemed so dull....We have a lot going on over the next few weeks and we are looking forward to that. This week was what we had to get through to get to the fun times.....

The World Cup started yesterday and I have been really looking forward to that....I am not a big football fan usually but I do like tournaments like this. I will watch as many matches as I can....I started with the Russia match yesterday. I did not expect the 5 - 0 win in the first match. The kids will be sick of football by the end of the month. hehehe

Sunday is Father's day and I have spent the week sorting my dad's card and pressie and Stu's. I realised the other day that Card Factory are just like Funky Pigeon where you can personalise their cards and send them to who you need to but they are so much cheaper....For Valentines day I got Stu a hammer with a few words engraved and I have got my dad one for Father's day....He is into DIY so I'm sure he'll love it.

Next week is Ellie's last Sports day at Primary school....All these lasts are happening and I don't like it one bit. I went to an art exhibition at school yesterday and bought some of her art work for £6.50 which was a total rip off. It was just in a cheap frame but I am cherishing every last thing the school have to give to us.... 

We will be going to Newcastle as a family next weekend as the big fair "The Hoppings" is in town....We have been twice over the last 10 years. Once when I was pregnant with Ellie and then again in 2011 when Ellie was about 4 years old. Now the girls can go on more rides and I predict us spending a small fortune....

During the week we got the letter about transition week, where Ellie goes up to the secondary school for a few days. Most years the kids visit after the parents have been for a visit but that evening was planned when "The Beast from the East" was here so they rescheduled and it is after Ellie has spent some time with her new teachers. I think it's a better way to do things as we can hear how she has settled in....I am so excited but at the same time so worried for her....She is eager to go. Some teachers have been coming from the big school to speak to the year 6's and they've been telling them about things like lunchtime and after school clubs. In Ellie's head she's already signed up for trampoline, Lego & computer clubs. lol


  1. I love the hammer :) It sounds like you have lots to look forward to. I'm glad Ellie likes her new school, I know my Star had lots of transition days before she moved over. It will be different for Boo this year as she's already in the school. I suppose she'll get to meet her new teachers though, it's this time when you appreciate an all through school. Pity it didn't work out for the little man. Have a great time at the fair, make sure you save plenty of money for the trip, these small fairs make a killing! xx

  2. That hammer is fab. My handyman hubby would love it! I've left it a bit late for fathers day but will add it to his birthday gifts! There is so much going on in school at this time of year that it can get a bit overwhelming at times.

  3. Weeks can be like that when you've lots coming up, I know just what you mean. Hope you all have fun at the fair and that Ellie enjoys her settling in days at her new school. Love that she's already planned her clubs! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  4. Hope Ellie enjoys her transition day. I'm sure she already feels familiar with the school having a big sister there already. We have our day in July. We've also got a school art exhibition coming up. Art priced at £10, so yours sounds like a bargain! The fair sounds fun. Hope you all enjoy yourselves. #wotw

  5. I love that hammer Kim, such a thoughtful idea. Sports day will be bittersweet I bet, lots of lasts but lots of new beginnings to look forward to as well. The next few weeks sound like lots of fun !

  6. Wow I love that hammer Kim, I never seen a personalised one before. Ah such an emotional time coming up for you Kim. I remember it well from 12 months ago, and I can't believe my daughter is coming up to the end of year 7 already. It goes so quickly and I am sure your daughter will be fine x

  7. Ah exciting times Ellie will love it, I found the last sports day so sad like the end of an era, and I love the hammer what lovely words Kim. Have a fab week x
