Word of the Week – Disappear

Each Friday, I would like to share a word of the week with you. Something that summarises what I’ve been up to, how I’ve felt and how life is generally going. I’d love if you’d share one in the comments. It can be so therapeutic to reflect on what’s been happening, good or bad!

This week I have chosen the word disappear

If you enjoy my nonsense ramblings each week you might have noticed that last week I disappeared! I’m not a magician (sorry if you’re disappointed by this news), it was just one of those days. I wasn’t organised with a blog post, on either of my blogs, and I had so much going on with freelance work that it all felt too much.

Instead of forcing myself to churn out a jumble of words I chose to just do nothing. That might sound quite lazy to some, but I think it was the right decision for me. Yes I missed a day and my stats probably took a bit of a hit as a result, but I was able to finish off my work, enjoy my weekend and then get back to work first thing Monday morning with a clear head.

It has actually done me the world of good as I am now organised on Sunshine and Rain with two weeks worth of posts and counting. It feels so nice to be organised and it means I won’t have to disappear again any time soon.

Disappear is a perfect word to describe this year too, don’t you agree? I realise that I sound like my Grandma right now, but time is disappearing so quickly! As of Tuesday there are only three months until Christmas. Don’t get me wrong, I loooooove the holidays, but it’s actually scaring me just how quickly it is coming round. Hopefully getting a bit more organised will allow me to slow down some days and enjoy some more time in the moment!


So there it is, my word of the week and a summary of the past seven days.

      Next time I think I’ll disappear to a nice little holiday home somewhere 😛 #WotW

  2. I’ve often had to skip a week of linking up, sometimes you just can’t fit everything all in. I agree about time flying too, I can’t believe how fast September is going. Have a great weekend x #wotw

      It’s funny, I was worrying about missing out on the post. But of course, the world didn’t end and now I’m back on track! You to Angela 🙂 #WotW

  3. I tend to disappear a lot lately, it doesn’t do any harm. It’s good that you’ve had a break and come back with some fresh ideas. Yes, time does move so very fast, it seems like we only come back from holiday yesterday and it’s nearly Christmas already!

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      From shorts and Tshirts to blankets and candles so quickly Anne! I can’t complain though, I love this time of year! #WotW

  4. Ah, sounds like that was definitely the right thing to do, and you’re back on top of everything again now. I know, the year is flying by! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      It’s turned out to be the best thing 🙂 I’m feeling so much more organised now! #WotW

  5. Sometimes you need a break and it sounds like you did the right thing taking a day off.
    I was only saying to my friend today that it didn’t seem that long since last Christmas. This year sure is flying over. #Wotw

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      It’s mad isn’t Kim?! I’m excited for Christmas, but time needs to slow down please #WotW

  6. Mummy here and there says:

    Sometimes you just need to do nothing and sloe down a notch or too. Glad you are feeling better, eek the thought of Christmas 😂 X #wotw

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      It seems to have worked out for the best and I’m back on track 🙂 #WotW

  7. I think it’s good to let yourself disappear every now and then and not to put pressure on to write a blog post if you don’t feel like doing so. Getting more organised is always good though and it is nice to have blog posts scheduled and ready to go. #WotW

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      That’s what I’m doing now Louise 🙂 If I can get a full week or so ahead of myself with posts I’ll be happy! #WotW

  8. True true. Time flies so fast! I couldnt believe how its October already (few days to go but still)!

      Almost there! I do love this time of year but I would like it to slow down a little bit! #WotW
