L is for …
You’ve heard the saying ‘I’d be rich if I had a pound for every time I heard …’.
Well, that would be true of the word lovely for me because I say it so often myself!
It has to be one of my favourite words – it sounds so sing song and conveys meaning edged with a nice warm fuzzy glow. Friends are greeted with ‘hello lovely’ and I’ll often tell G a story about my day that begins ‘I saw a lovely cat/made a lovely new allotment friend/had a lovely lunch with so and so today’. Perhaps it’s laziness on my part to use the same word over and over. Perhaps I’m just a big softie who’s attracted to loveliness in every day things?
Speaking of lovely things, there’s a new kid on the block at the allotment. He’s rather shy hence the fuzzy zoom shot but very sweet with a lopsided smile and minus a tail.
