Lost Words – Let’s bring ’em back!


It’s time for our regular monthly post about a lost word!


You know the type of thing, those poor lost words that sit in our minds gathering dust, having been discovered years ago in literary classics like Dickens, or Austen. They are the spices of the literary world, but I refuse to let them sit in a cupboard and be ignored until they go out of date! Let’s bring them back!

So, I’m cheating a bit today (and not just because I have a shit ton of Christmas presents to buy and wrap), but I found this absolutely brilliant article on The Telegraph’s website when I was researching weird, lost words for this Christmas themed post.

It’s a list of 21 obscure Christmas words and I can absolutely guarantee that you will not have heard of some of them. So, really, I’m not being lazy and cheating, I’m actually doing you a favour! I’m educating! Here it is: https://bit.ly/2FAi1mE

Anyway, I really hope you enjoy it! Let me know what your favourite word is, and if there are any you want to share, why not leave me a note in the comments below.

The first thing you need to know about me is, I like gin. Lots and lots of gin.
I live in the South East of England in a lovely little town by the sea and spend my time working, running around after my kids, walking our King Charles Spaniel, Wotsit, and writing!

I love history and have a Master’s degree, but have also been lucky enough to work in various castles and museums over the years. I’ve yet to get one of them into a story though – I really must try harder!
