Change

I've been thinking about my Word of the Week since yesterday and I'm still not sure about it. It's been a strange one this week because of the kids being off school Monday and Tuesday and lots of other things going on. I think I've settled on 


Change


Monday and Tuesday were kind of written off because of school being closed, or at least that's what I thought. The hubby decided on Monday that we would go and visit family and go for a walk seeing as it was nice. It ended up being a lovely walk with the boys, it really did them good. On Tuesday we had to stay at home, the hubby had to get work done and BP has a school project he's working on. Wednesday came and I thought it was Monday again, I nearly forgot BP's swimming kit and gave LP his football kit (which he doesn't need on a Wednesday) to take to school. 

Come Wednesday evening I thought the week had been a bit of a waste, it was seeming like I hadn't got much done (including exercise). But then late that night I got a text from one of the girls and we went walking Thursday morning. I've been to yoga this morning again and the instructor really pushed us this time and she's left me wondering if she went easy on us for our first time! It was tough but I still enjoyed it, so I guess that's good. Then this lunch time me and the hubby went for a walk instead of our usual sitting on bottoms while watching TV and eating. It was great to be outside again in the sun getting fresh air. 

Sometimes it can do us good to change things up, mess with our routine and generally get in our own way. It can make us see what we've been missing. Other times it can drive us mad when something doesn't go to plan. I'm still not sure how I feel about this past week, I got most of my exercise done and plenty of writing but for some reason still feel like I didn't achieve enough. Maybe I'm just trying to push myself too hard.

How do you feel when something unexpected happens? Do you thrive on the surprise or dread the day?

  1. A nice mix up of the routine can be fun but sometimes it does make you feel like nothing gets done x

    1. Totally. I like change sometimes, or at least I do when I can be prepared!

  2. I love change, and like my routine being messed up once in a while. Think it does us good, but only if we choose to embrace it, of course. Thanks for sharing your week and your word with #WotW x

    1. I think it's the unexpected change that sometimes does us best, although we often don't think so at the time! Thanks for stopping by. xx
