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

This week my Word of the Week is:

When I was thinking of a word to use I couldn't decide whether to us indulged or overindulged. We have done everything to an excess this week so I think overindulged is the way to go.

Stu has had a week off from work and Ellie has been off college for her Easter break which has meant we have had a lot of family time. Stu especially needed the break after having Covid last week, thankfully we didn't catch it which is a small miracle but he felt tired out by the time he finished work. We have had so many lie in's. Not having an alarm clock set has been such a treat and we have all probably slept more than we should have. I am blaming the clocks changing for us being extra tired, of course it has nothing to do with us all staying up later on a night. hehehe

We have especially overindulged in food. Stu and I have been to the pub to eat out twice, once on Sunday where we had a 3 course Sunday lunch which I mentioned in my Friday Favourites yesterday and on Tuesday when we took the kids along for a meal. The food being served is cooked from scratch and is proper home cooked food but made to look fancy. I went with my usual scampi and chips which was perfect! Becky had the best lasagne ever, she was in cheese heaven, Ellie had the gammon which was so good and Stu had the sausage and mash. Their mash is amazing, they say it's creamy but words can't describe it.

We all had dessert which wasn't really needed as we were all full, we ended up feeling stuffed but it was worth it. We ended up staying at the pub for the quiz and it turns out we are cleverer than we thought and came 2nd.

We went shopping in Hull yesterday so of course had to call into the all you can eat place and of course ate far too much. On the way home we got cookies and donuts from Batch'd and we are having one last foodie treat with breakfast out this morning or lunch time if we end up sleeping late again.

I have got to the point now where I know I have overindulged in watching The Walking Dead, I keep having weird dreams about not so much zombies or fighting but going places and there being abandoned. This weekend is going to be all about watching wresting with it being the WWE's main event of the year, Wrestlemania. It's on over 2 nights but we won't be staying up to watch it as it starts at 1am which is just too late for us.

One thing I have not overindulged in over the past week is housework, it has all been done but I haven't had it all to do. My family might think they have overindulged in jobs around the house as they have been helping out but it has been nice for me. It has been brilliant to have a week of not having to wash the dishes, Stu has mostly done them, Ellie has kept on top of the washing pile and Becky has helped out when she hasn't been sleeping for work.

How has your week been? I hope you have had a good one!

Word of the Week linky


  1. That sounds like a delicious week! We have had a lovely week and I feel like I have gotten a lot accomplished too.

  2. You could easily have called this week FOODILICIOUS! It sounds like you have all had a blast. The foods you showed looked really good. I like when food is presented well! Now to think about not letting those calories stick! hehe. Wishing you all a fab week ahead.

  3. Lots of lovely food. I like the idea of homemade food made fancy! I've not watched Walking Dead, but I think I'd enjoy it. Good for you delegating housework to the rest of the family. You deserve a break from routine too.

  4. It sounds like a lovely week. I love it when all the family chip in and help, and I love eating out but don't do it enough. My lot are really not that into pub meals which is a shame because we have a nice one in walking distance. I love to have scampi too. xx

  5. It’s quite nice to overindulge sometimes! The food at the pub looks and sounds amazing. Well done on coming 2nd in the quiz. So nice to have a week of others helping out with housework too. #WotW
