You know how sometimes you get a word stuck in your head? I’m experiencing that today with the word ‘ferruginous’, which means rust-coloured. It’s a splendid word. Roll it around on your tongue. Try to slip it into conversations. Ponder it for a bit.
In other, possibly not entirely unrelated, news – I’m feeling rather delicate this morning. I didn’t suffer from hangovers when I was young and foolish but now that I’m old and stupid I find that I do and it’s not fun. I’ve taken the obligatory paracetamol and I’ll try to drink plenty of water while I laze around in front of the TV. I’m so glad I don’t have to do much today and that I’m off work tomorrow.
