Word of the Week: 8 04 18

By 08:00 , ,

This week my word is:



I picked this word because I'm currently reading the book 'The Odyssey', which is taking me a really long time to read, and which I have to get finished by the end of my Easter holidays (next Sunday) - eek!

I also picked this word because it means: 'A long and eventful or adventurous journey or experience' and I have been doing a fair bit of train travel recently (although whilst long it was not particularly eventful unless you count listening to the train driver's jokes over the speaker system as eventful). I don't really mind travelling - but a few problems, delays and the like and it really can feel like an odyssey. I was lucky this week and I hope everyone travelling over Easter has had the same luck as me.

One final reason why I picked this word this week is because I've been thinking a lot about the journey of my blog. My blog turns three years old next week and I can't believe it! So many things have happened in three years - my blog's journey really has been a eventful. I may not have fought off mystical monsters or conversed with gods but it's been a lot of fun, I've met some wonderful and interesting people and I hope my blog will continue to get bigger and better! I've learned a lot since I started and been given a lot of helpful advice - what was the most helpful piece of advice you were ever given about blogging? 

Have a wonderful week and thank you especially to this link-up, and Jocelyn in particular who helped me when I first started out.
