You frivolous creature you.

I was going through some old bits and pieces and found some craps of paper where you changed your mind about the new word you had fallen in love with, so regularly, you flitterbug.

Do you remember 'aestivation'?

That was long ago now.

You seem to have given your heart elsewhere though.

It seems no word can keep you monogamous and faithful, Baron!

Have just discovered you and your blog, am giddy with excitement!

Oh, Jayne, that's a very nice thing to say, especially as I now officially only post two sentences at a time.

Aestivation! My first love. But times change, M, and word preferences change with them. Wouldn't mind a bit of aestivating right now, but.
