I love that word.
I was utterly utterly convinced it originated from Dickensian ye olde worlde English.
However, after a good old chit chat with my good friend* Susie Dent. I can reveal
“ English lacks a word for the blurring of time during the Christmas holidays, when the boundaries of our days recede, the weeks seem to stretch and we lose all touch with the calendar, briefly and blissfully unaware of the date, the day or even the time.“ This is the word she chose...
Merryneum but then goes on to describe it akin to a certain body part - whispers ‘down stairs’ and points downward with finger - so Twixtmas is the one I am sticking with.
Firstly thanks for all concerns re the C19 word. Both of us are absolutely fine if not somewhat hypochondriacs.
So I did Roast Beef last night for tea and it was good. Tonight I think I yearn for a good old jacket potato and salad or something. I have been enjoying doing my jigsaw and think after some gentle tidying around, some hand stitching of some sort will be enjoyed. It’s cold and frosty outside so no coast today because it’s far too cold for Bluebell in the sea brrrrrr - she’s super skinny and not very thick coated.
I watched a TV programme about Finland - can’t recall what is was called etc but I was transfixed with how beautiful it was. So
Maybe Judith Chalmers was on to something!!
Have a lovely day whatever it is you are doing
Lots of love from
