Default Word 2003 document saves as Wordpad docx

I've recently installed Office 365 after using Office 2003 for a few years. Today I opened a document created on Word 2003 to make a few alterations - so far so good.
However, when it came to saving the altered version, instead of giving me the option of replacing the old version it saved the altered version as a docx file which opens as a Wordpad document unless I right-click the file and choose the "open with" option and select Word.
Can anyone throw any light on this please.
