A confusing week. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:


Even though my word might imply my week has not been so good it has actually been fine....It has just left my head a little done in....lol

The confusion started on Saturday.....I received a card through the door saying I had a parcel to collect from the sorting office but I had to pay postage.....I wasn't going to pay but curiosity got the better of me....I paid online and had to wait until Wednesday for it to be delivered....When it arrived there was even more confusion. It was a prize from a competition that I had already received.....lol There is perks to being a blogger....I managed to find the person who deals with the company and resolve the situation....

On Tuesday I received my child tax credit payment into my bank. I usually receive them on a Thursday....I just put it down to the bank holiday....Then on Thursday I received another payment for just a little less....I'm waiting to see if anything comes in the post today and if nothing does I will be giving them a ring....I haven't done the yearly renewal yet so it has left me a little confused....The extra money is nice but I really don't want to spend it in case they have made a mistake or it's a payment for next week....

I am totally lost with what day it is due to the Bank holiday....The kids are too....Tuesday felt like a Monday, Wednesday felt like a Tuesday and so on.....I do like a short week though...

It has been a good week....Becky had her braces tightened....It's coming to the point where most of her teeth and where they should be and she is finding the process less painful! Hooray!

Ellie had a great week at school....She is learning about the Romans and she is finding it so interesting which means she's working extra hard....

  1. It is always confusing when we have a bank holiday, I spend the week thinking its a different day to what it actually is too. Great that Ellie is enjoying the Romans. #WoTW

  5. oooh about the tax credits, I had the same and it's ok. I know they usually send a form but I've not received one either but they owed me a little from last year and this is usually paid in April...they must be running a little late this year. By all means call them if you are worried but they don't usually pay you money unless they mean to. Last year I remember filling in my form in June. In other news, it's good that Becky's teeth are coming along nicely and that Ellie is enjoying her school work.

  7. I use to had barces before I got here and now the spaces are back. Its really like that! At the start everything is painful and then you will get use to it till its doesnt hurt at all!

    So many confusing things happening for you! I guess people are still dizzy from the last holidays!

  10. Bank holidays always throw me too - I can never work out what day it is for the next few days afterwards! So glad that Becky's teeth are getting less painful and Ellie learning about the Romans sounds interesting.

  12. Shorter weeks are definitely confusing, I never seem to know what day it is. In fact I'm pretty sure four day weeks are actually longer! Hope you're having a less confusing week this week x
