Short one today as the dashboard screen was down during my normal writing time. Unfortunate as I had no excuse to avoid housework. It is back up in time for what my friend used to call arsenic hour. The time when the kids are just home from school and your time is not your own!
Fortunately I had been given a word by no1 son. It is Flime. No, it is not a buried word, it is a made up word. It is his word for his current favourite colour. You know that bright limey flourescent metallic green colour that everything cool (to a ten-year old boy) is at the moment? Bikes, cars (Ford’s version of it is called Toxic green), scooters. Anything paintable, really. That’s Flime. He was trying to describe something to me and used this word as it fits beautifully to describe flourescent and lime combined.
