Hello friend, I hope that you enjoy unwrapping the gifts I have to share today.
Do you remember last week's WW post when I asked you to write down your favourite word?
Well you came up with some cracking good finds and I really enjoyed reading them all.
I promised to make them into a poster and it's been a fun task creating it for you.
Can you find your word? There are so many here that I love saying out aloud for their musicality.
And there was even one word that was a complete newie for me, can you guess which one it was?
Heather. Captain V and I had a fun morning trying to work out what it meant before eventually heading off to the dictionary to check the meaning....actually Captain V made up a little ditty centred around the town of Nimbin which my Aussies readers could probably guess the content of!
"So what does it mean?" I hear you ask.
Serving to bring clouds or stormy weather - so it's a word I will no doubt be able to use quite a bit now that the spring and summer storm season approaches.
So to all of you who played along I say a great big "Thank You!" I really enjoyed not only your words but also the reasons why you chose them.
If you're a writer, teacher or simply a lover of words [a logophile as my Lovely friend Jane informs me] please feel free to print off our new word poster and use it to zhush up your sentences and expand the vocabulary of those about you.
Now for a bonus gift just because you're such great blogging friends.
I was delighted with a gift of serendipity sent from the Fairy Hobmother yesterday where she contacted me out of the blue and made my day with a gift card to Dymocks Bookstores = yippeee!
Being the generous soul that she is, the Fairy Hobmother has told me that if you would like a wish to come true too, all that you need do is leave a comment on this post and make a wish - how fabulous is that?!?
Have fun wishing away fabulous friend and a happy day to you!
