Word of the week - Fragile

Ive chosen the word fragile as my word of the week because that is just how I have felt for the last couple of days and still feeling now!

There are times when I feel ill and I just want to snuggle on the sofa and watch movies or read a book but when I feel fragile I cant even do that because the sound of the TV irritates me and my head hurts too much to read!... OK enough of me feeling sorry for myself, at least I got ill during the holidays so I don't have to take time off work or face a class of 8 year olds feeling like this! Although my daughter is not best pleased as we were supposed to visit family and now shes stuck indoors and bored!

When I look at the word fragile I just think of Fraggle rock (yes that's showing my age) I don't know why, maybe because there's not many words with 'frag' at the beginning! 

I do find words really interesting and like to know where they originate from so for your information the word fragile is from the 1500s and comes from the Latin fragilis meaning 'liable to sin, morally weak'... OK yeah that sounds just like me!

For this word of the week #wotw I have linked up with The reading residence on the link below
