The Waiting Game - #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is....

Yes it may be a little similar to last weeks WotW Countdown (Sorry) but it seems like I am just waiting for things to happen....

This week seems to have dragged.....I think it's because school finishes next week and we are just waiting for that! 

Becky went and had another appointment with dentist about her braces.....She has been approved for them! Hooray and she is back on Monday for x-rays and moulds to be taken then hopefully the week after she will get her braces....I will be stocking up on painkillers and Bonjela as I know she will be sore but at least it will be the school holidays so she won't have to stress about being sore in school....

Ellie has had a good week at school.....It seems she has turned another corner with her behavior....It has improved greatly....I hope it continues next week...She gets to meet her new teacher on Tuesday....The year 4 teacher is a man and he is quite new to the school but he seems OK.....I am hoping a man teacher has a positive effect on her....I am just waiting for the school to say there is a change in staff....lol It has been done before....As soon as I know her teacher I will be ambushing them and letting them know about her deafness and behavior problems because last year the school didn't bother to pass the information on to her new teacher....

I have my comping mojo back! I lost interest in entering competitions a while ago....I just couldn't find the time so just made do with entering a few Twitter one's & one's on blogs but this week I must have entered a good few hundred comps from all sorts of websites and even Facebook one's.....Now I am hoping and waiting that I have a few nice wins....hehehe

I have had some lovely emails this week about items to review and I'm waiting for them to be delivered and I have a another giveaway starting on Monday....

Everyone who had kind words about my nephews grandmother....She passed away earlier in the week! My nephew is devastated as is my ex-sister in law (it's complicated....She and my brother split but we are still close) Cancer is just shit! Sorry to swear but it is!
