I signed up to the OED's 'word of the day' a while ago and today's word is 'ladykin' which is explained as 'a small dimunitive lady. Sometimes used as a term of endearment.'
How sweet is that?!
I usually avoid '? of the day' sign-ups, blogs, projects. I just find them exhausting but I look forward to my daily wordy email. It has an extensive list of references, idioms and information about each word in each email which can provide a certain amount of bloggy wandering, all in the name of language and education.
On another matter - it's the Easter holidays! After a couple of weeks of household activity and to and froingness, I'm ready for a bit of a breather, if only to catch up on course work get organised for the onslaught of assessments that are looming at the beginning of May.
Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.
