So my word of the week is Reflection. I have decided to use this word as I have been looking back over my blog this week and reflecting on how much I have achieved over the past couple of months in starting up my new blog. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I’ve worked hard to build it to where I want it to go and what I want to achieve from it. My husband said to me a while ago why don’t I go for it and become a blogger, I always have something to say! So I took his advice and went for it!
Last week I loved joining up with thereadingresidence fantastic Word of the Week linky for the first time so I have decided to join in again. I love the idea of summing up your week with just one word, its like a little diary of your week!
I think one of my main decisions for starting up was due to my work situation. I have recently been demoted due to management restructure changes and wanted something else outside of work to focus my brain on. I have always been a huge book lover, (this came from my mum) and love to potter around outside in the garden, so why not write about things I love? I cannot really pinpoint exactly when I started entering competitions, although it was a few years ago! but I do know it started through Twitter. Retweeting a competition tweet was so easy and once my first win came I have never stopped!
On Sundays my husband and I always take the dog for a walk down to Malpas by the river in Truro. Its one of my favourite places and I always like to reflect on the previous week on what we have been up to.
A couple of weeks back I took this photo of the cement works down there as the sky was so clear and the water so still that it showed the most perfect reflection in the water, so very appropriate for my word of the week: Reflection. #WotW
