Word of the Week

This week went by as fast as any other, and I really think that can only mean one thing – I am enjoying life. 

It was my mum's Birthday on Wednesday and all the family came round for a lovely meal cooked by my dad. I took a day off lent and indulged in three puddings and had fun playing with baby OH. She is growing and changing so much! If you haven't read my post on becoming an auntie, you can check it out here.

Despite the excitement of a Birthday and lots of hard work this week, it wasn't difficult to decide on my word of the week. Halcyon is a word I wish I used more often. It's stunningly unique and has such a common meaning, I wonder why I don't see or hear it more than once every now and then.

Halcyon, halcyon, halcyon. It sounds mystical, almost royal. The more I think about it, the more it sounds like the perfect name for a baby boy. Maybe I'll add it to my list.


  1. Everytime I hear that word, I think of Delphic and Ellie Goulding's albm, ha!

    1. Haha I realised afterwards that Ellie Goulding's album is called Halcyon!

    So do you pronounce it hal-see-on? Or some way else?

    I love the idea of having a word of the week - such a great way to broaden your horizons.

    Hmm maybe...

    1. Yep I think that's how you pronounce it! It's such a good word isn't it :)
