I started doing the buried words part of this blog because I love to hear words that are rarely used these days. They would stick in my head more effectively if I wrote a post about them and I hoped that maybe someone else would read them and remember them too. I considered it job done yesterday when the man of the house used ‘boudoir’ in the context of a sulking room. No, he hadn’t read my blog, he had just heard me raving on about it and obviously it stuck in his head too. I wouldn’t have been going on about it if I hadn’t been writing the post so, indirectly, the blog has had its desired effect. Job done. Maybe I should write a post about men doing more housework too….
