Word of The Week

My word for this week, joining up with the ever enthusiastic Jocelyn of the Reading Residence Word of the week Linky :

sat·is·fied   (săt′ĭs-fīd′)
1. Filled with satisfaction; content: a very satisfied customer.
2. Paid or discharged in full, as a debt or obligation.
3. Convinced beyond a doubt.

I'm not entirely sure my word is as accurate as I'd like, so here are a few more, all equally applicable to this week - knackered; proud; tired; emotional; wiped out...

I knew it was going to be a busy one, with Noah's birthday as well as our (Bristol Parent Carers) annual participation event, and while there were no major disasters, the sheer amount of activity was bound to be a struggle, so all in all I'm pleased to still be standing!  While I still question the logic of the person who handed me a microphone and a cadburys creme egg at the same time (right before I had to make a presentation in front of two hundred ish people, made up of parent carers, and professionals from health, education, social care and various other council officers), it mostly made sense, so I'm told, and I'm happy with that!

Right now, the exhaustion is winning though, so I'm going to leave it there.  I don't know why the paragraphs are lined up strangely, and have neither the energy nor the concentration to work it out ... sorry!  I hope you all had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend - there's sunshine in Bristol this afternoon, so fingers crossed it's here to stay, for a few days at least!
