Word of the week - Relieved

This week I have been recovering from my fragile state so I'm feeling relieved of all the pain. I was however still feeling quite anxious about an observation that was due on Friday. It wasn't really anything to be worried about, just a member of senior management observing how I was interacting with the children in nursery as a preparation for my appraisal. I don't know why I was feeling nervous about it, maybe because I hate that idea of someone watching and judging me. 

After all the worry it turned out that my senior manager had an unexpected meeting with a parent and so was unable to do my observation which was a great relief for me but in a way I wish I had just got it over and done with because I know she will catch up with me at some point! Anyway for now I am just going to enjoy the weekend and forget all about it!

For your information the word relieve comes from the 11th century french word Relevare meaning 'to raise, alleviate, lift up, free from burden.'

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

  1. I'm so pleased you're now relieved of the pain, and feeling less fragile. As for the observation, I'm sure you'll be fine. I used to be the one carrying out loads of observations in my old job, and it was always about help not judgement :) Thanks for joining in with #WotW x

  2. Thank you, I think the thought of it is probably worse than the actual observation! Need to worry less x

  3. Relief is a great feeling; good luck with everything :)
