lie-in, webs, oed word of the day, hotchi-witchi

















Decided to have a bit of a lie-in after all.  Feeling fresher for it.

Amazing webs in the hedges and on the fields, when out cycling!

Btw I subscribe to the Oxford English Dictionary's excellent Word of the day service (see oed site, box on right hand side). The word that appeared in my inbox the other day, complete with etymology and historic examples of its use, was 'hotchi-witchi', which is an English Romani word for hedgehog. Love that word!
