Word of the week - Ebullient
This week I am being positive!
It hasn't been a great week, but then it hasn't particularly been a bad week either and I'm thinking there are people going through a lot worse than I am so I need to be grateful for what I have.
If you didn't know already, it is the last week of term (for some) and I am really looking forward to the Easter holidays. I haven't got much planned as yet but I hope to spend some time with friends who I don't make enough of an effort to see! I also want to take the kids out on a few day trips, do some crafting and sort the garden. I'm actually quite excited about giving my house a spring clean! (it really needs it)
I know its a bit of a weird time of year to try and lose weight... particularly for a chocoholic, but I'm hoping to lose half a stone before my birthday which is around 6 weeks time. I have never been a gym type of girl but hopefully a few sessions of 'Just dance' on the Xbox Kinect will whip me into shape... along with getting good use out of my juicer rather than raiding the cupboard for biscuits.
For your information the word ebullient means overflowing with enthusiasm and excitement and high spirited.
It comes from the Latin word ebullientem meaning to burst out, to bubble. It was first recorded in 1660s
