Word of the Week 7/1/2023 New Start #WotW

It was 12/11/2022 when I last did a WotW post and a lot has happened since then. We had a holiday, Christmas snuck up on us, Sir, Madam and I had the horrible flu bug which for Sir and I turned into chest/sinus infections, Christmas plans were cancelled and re arranged, Mum sent Christmas dinner to us in foil containers. I got the urge to do a clear out in our bedroom which ended with me buying a bookcase, something I have wanted for ages. We spent New Year’s Eve at home and instead of my parents visiting us on New Year’s Day for Chinese food I delivered it to their house as my Dad recovered from a minor op. If I’d done WotW at that time it would have been “Foil Trays”!

Now though we are all recovered, my Dad is feeling better, the kids are back at school, Hubby and I are back at work. I can leave the last year behind and start on this one.

Today we had my in laws and parents round for lunch. I made lasagne, we drank wine and there was even a late exchange of Christmas gifts.

In the garden my Spring bulbs are beginning to emerge a sign that even though it’s cold and dark still warmer weather and lighter days are on the way. There is lots to look forward to including a holiday in February, someone is turning 50 this year (ahem) I have tickets to concerts and events – Hubby bought me a VIP ticket to Gardener’s World Live for Christmas and I am going with my parents to see Alfie Boe later in the year.

I even made resolutions this year something I never ever do. Mainly things like making shopping lists and sticking to them.. I also resolved to listen to more music. I’ve only really had music on in the car over this past year, I haven’t bought many new CD’s and had generally lost interest. But I did miss it silly as that seems and I’ve been putting music on whilst I’m doing housework or cooking. It makes such a difference.

I’d like to wish you all a belated Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year and new starts for all those in need of one.

  1. “Foil trays”! I have missed your humour. Glad you are all feeling better and have caught up with everyone. You’re right about the spring bulbs. Everything seems to be starting up earlier this year. You sound like you’ve got a good year set up. Happy new year to you too! #wotw

    • Hehehehe! Honestly I’ve never seen so many foil trays! I’m just hoping the seedlings that were doing so well at the start of December and turned to mush after that cold snap can recover!

  2. Oh wow! A lot has happened with you. I am glad you are all feeling better now. It sounds like you had a lovely time with family and an exciting year coming up. Wishing you all the best for 2023. x

  3. Our ends of last year sound the same lots of illness and plan rearranging. You sound like you have lots of exciting plans coming up this year. I can’t bring myself to commit to anything yet, I just keep looking at the budgeting lists I have. I hope you have a great 2023 x #WotW

    • Budgeting is a big thing in our house too. Most of these things were booked a while ago or I had them as Christmas gifts. Hope you have a good year too x

  4. Sorry I’m so late this week, it’s been our turn for the bugs. I’m glad you managed to fit in some celebrations despite being ill over the holiday. Our foil trays are usually delivered by the take away services! Good to have you back x

    • LOL! I haven’t had a take away in years! we don’t seem to have any decent ones by us. Hope everyone feels better soon x

  5. I’m glad you’re all feeling better now – what a lot of things you had going on over Christmas and New Year! Hope that this year will be a good one for you and your family. Lovely to see spring bulbs starting to pop up in the garden. Good luck with your resolutions for this year. #WotW
