This week my Word of the Week is: Freedom! #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:


We have had a great week and have made the most of feeling well again after Covid, Becky having some time off work and it still being the school holidays. It feels so good having some freedom.

We went into town to get Ellie the last of her birthday presents. I had already bought her main one's but she wanted some new clothes too. I gave her the freedom to choose what she wanted and probably spent more than I should of but to be fair Ellie has grown and did need some new clothes. She probably didn't need the denim jacket but that was an extra treat. hehehe We had a lovely time. It was nice to get out after spending over a week in the house. 

I blew the kids mind treating them to a Tango Ice Blast from the cinema. If you don't know what a Tango Ice Blast is it's a slushy made from the pop tango. The kids thought you could only buy them from the cinema if you were going to see a film so it was quite a shock for them when we went in, bought them and came straight back out. I think I may have started something though as Becky said she is going to go with her friends and just get ice blasts and popcorn. lol

Ellie has been out playing with her friends. They went out on their bikes and right around our little town. She went out just after lunch and didn't come back home until tea time one day. They went to the woods going up and down the ramps that people have made there and ended up at the skate park meeting up with other friends. It has been good for her to get out and have some fun and we realised she should really make the most of it as we have noticed it getting darker earlier and earlier. When the darker nights come she won't have that freedom of going out with friends. As much as we live in a quiet town with not much trouble I still don't like her out when it's dark.

On Wednesday we were back at the cinema to watch the new Railway Children film. It was really good but really sad too. I thought it was a kids film, although it is suitable for children, I would say older children. My two loved it although Becky hadn't realised what it was about. lol She thought it was a modern film about kids who hung about a railway station.

Yesterday was a grey and gloomy day and I think we needed it to keep us inside to catch up on what needed doing. We have been off gallivanting a lot over the past week, making the most of our freedom.

I hope you have all had a good week!

Word of the week linky


  1. I'm so glad you've been making the most of your freedom. It's a tricky one, letting your kids out when it's dark, even in a quiet town. Sadly the nights are drawing in now and it'll be dark by the time they get home from school xx

  2. I've noticed it's getting dark a lot earlier now. I'm not sure I'd let my kids out to play after dark either. Good to see her enjoying her freedom while she can!

  3. NICE WAY TO CELEBRATE GETTING YOUR FREEDOM BACK. That cinema trick is a cool one. enjoy.

  4. So glad that you have your freedom back and that everyone is feeling well again.
    We were saying about the nights drawing in just the other day. It will soon be autumn. xx

  5. I love the freedom of the school holidays. So glad you've been able to make the most of it now that everyone is feeling better again. It sounds like you had a good week. #WotW
