Some More Great Words

After a short flutter on twitter, I often find myself on some random website reading some article or other.  New blogs are also discovered during these, 'down the rabbit hole' type of journeys on the internet.  This morning, I stumbled upon, this slideshow on Dictionary.com. 

After reading the first definition, I believe I am a logophile (this is a screen shot- click the link above if you want to learn more). 


I'm not an epeolatrist though - that sounds a bit creepy to me.  

We all know how much I love words and I'm proud of it.  A few of the words on this list will certainly be added to my favourites list such as: verbicide, litotes and the great sesquipedalian.  In fact, I think I might be a sesquipedalian logophile.  Now I understand why composing a tweet sometimes takes me so long that the conversation I'm tweeting about is yesterday's news! 

Oh, Dictionary.com, there are times when you're better than Google. Did I type that out loud?

That's That Then!

Great... Something











I wonder if you will be as shocked about this as me?


Nanny irons her pyjamas!!

True Story! 

If I didn't see it for myself, I wouldn't have believed it.  I suppose there is more to being an 'ironing fairy' than meets the eye!

My Great 6 Words for now... 6 Word Memoirs!!

The message of your 6 words, can change from day to day and with mood.  The 6 words website offers a space for a daily 6 words.  Here is a week's worth of 6 words from Me. 

It's a Girl - I knew it!  
(My sister gave birth to a healthy baby girl last week).

I just want to cuddle my niece.


Time for Bed, my little ones.  

Ready or not- here I come! 
(In order to give my sister and her hubby a chance to rest, we took some of the kids for the night.  The other kids went to see grandparents too.  We had a wonderful time playing hide and seek and building tall towers and face painting!)

Stop telling me what to do! 
(This was actually the summary my Doctor gave of my recent little meltdown)

More work than time - so busy! 

I think I'll take a nap! 

That's that then.  A week in 42 words.
