Word of the Week – Chill

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 Chill

This weeks word has two means as I’ve been relaxing a lot and it’s been blooming freezing!

If you read last week’s post you will know that I have been making more of an effort to work in the office space we have in the house instead of on the sofa which had become the norm for me. As comfy as it was it meant that my living room was always filled with work stuff and I didn’t really have a division between the different parts of the day.

Well I am delighted to tell you that after just two weeks of doing this it is working really well and I’m finding myself chilling properly in the evenings. Nothing fancy, just curled up on the sofa in my dressing gown watching a good show and playing some Best Fiends on my tablet. (Is anyone else hooked on this game?)

Of course there has also been a chill thanks to the weather. If you’re in the UK you know what I’m talking about. The temperatures have dropped, the snow has arrived and we’ve had to amp up the heating to help keep the house warm. This is how I justify wearing my dressing gown over my clothes throughout the day.

As much as I’d like the weather to be getting warmer instead of colder I really can’t complain. I get to work from home and don’t really have to deal with the snow at all. In saying that, I am ready for the daffodils to appear now and I know that there are many people who have to face the cold each day that share that sentiment!

  1. Taking time to relax in the evenings sounds perfect. I work from home too and it is nice not to have to go out to work in the cold weather. I’m quite enjoying the snow at the moment but the arrival of warmer weather will be nice when it comes. #WotW

      It’s lovely being able to watch the snow from indoors isn’t it?! Definitely ready to be wearing a normal number of layers again though. A t-shirt, jumper and dressing gown is difficult to move in 😛 #WotW

  2. Inspired by your post last week I’ve worked from my desk this week and I’ve been so much more productive. So much so that I’ve been taking the evenings off and reading instead of working, so a big thank you for the motivation. It’s been so chilly this week hasn’t it, definitely an excuse for layering up in a dressing gown x #wotw

      Oh amazing Angela, that makes me so so happy! I love it when a small change makes such a big difference 🙂 #WotW

  3. I’m so glad that having a work space is working better for you. I can’t wait to have mine, but I’ve so much to do first. I’m still picking my desk. Keep warm and thanks for linking up to #wotw

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      Oh I hope you find one soon Anne, it’ll make such a difference I’m sure 🙂 #WotW

  4. It sounds like having an office is working brilliantly for you! It is nice to relax on an evening!
    I am so over this weather. I hate being cold but I also hate having the heating on all day. lol

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      Oh I’m glad you’re on the same boat Kim. Let’s do a sun dance and get spring to arrive sooner! #WotW

  5. I know I am so glad I don’t have to go out in it apart from the school run, its soooo cold. I couldn’t work on my sofa I would get to comfy and do nothing , I tend to stick to my desk to keep me motivated x

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      I don’t even have a school run to do Sarah so I really shouldn’t complain! Looks like the desk working is sticking I’m pleased to say and I enjoy the sofa so much more at the end of the day! #WotW

  6. Glad the work space is working out. Makes such a difference. No need to find a justification for wearing your dressing gown. It certainly has been chilly. Hope you see your daffodils soon. #wotw

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      They’re poking through the ground already Cheryl so they’ll hopefully be here soon! #WotW

  7. It is nice to have a place where you can relax and switch off. I am not when there is stuff everywhere. Have a great week X #wotw

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      It is so nice not having to tidy the living room up Sam! Definitely enjoying it 🙂 #WotW

  8. It certainly is chilly! fortunately we’ve avoided the snow. There is nothing better than curling up in front of the TV in your pyjamas at this time of year – I’ve been doing plenty of that!

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      That is a brilliant perk Karen! I’m not one for working in my PJs like a lot of people do but I do like relaxing in them in the evening when work is done! #WotW
