Word of the Week

It's always a challenge thinking of one word to sum up an entire week.  So many things happen during the week - makes my life sound fascinating, doesn't it? - that choosing only one word is sometimes difficult.  This week I wondered for a long while and then yesterday a single word rushed to the fore.  So here it is, the word of the week is ...


I've spent another week applying for jobs and getting nowhere.  I had an interview last week, thought it went well but yesterday got the 'thanks but no thanks' email.
I think I need to re-evaluate my life.  Am I destined to never work again?  Should I accept this and move on?

Food for thought.


  1. I think I'd find it tricky to find one word to sum up my week.
    Keep going with the job hunt, I'm sure you will find something.

  2. Thank you Char. I plan to cheer myself up with some knitting & sewing this weekend!

  3. Oh I'm sorry to hear that, it must be very frustrating. I moan about going to work but I do realise I am lucky to have employment, I'll keep my fingers crossed something it just around the corner for you x

  4. Thanks Em. I'm trying to stay positive but it's tough sometimes.

  5. It is hard to sum it up in one week, I agree. So sorry you've had a disappointing one. The right job may be lurking out there, or it may be time to re-think. Definitely food for thought, as you say. I do hope your conclusions and efforts make for a better week next week x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

  6. I'm going to think seriously about my future plans this weekend - who know, I may rise like a phoenix!

  7. Oh no! It must be so frustrating! Keep looking & good luck x

    1. Thanks Kim! Yes, getting more frustrated as time goes by, hence some decisions need to be made.

  8. Goodluck on future job hunting. It s really hard nowadays =( #wotw
