Cwtch-speak lesson 1: Dry toast

I'm sure that your family must have it's own language. Well maybe not an entire language, but certain words or phrases that you use and all "get", but may not mean the same thing to others. This is definitely the case in our household. I'm not feeling too great today (a combination of hayfever, hayfever-induced-asthma, a sore throat - still! - and the effects of various travel vaccinations yesterday) and in our house, that's a bad case of 'Dry Toast'. 

So no WIPs and books from me today but if you're on the lookout for some lovely crafting, photography and baking, an incredibly talented Polish friend has just started an English language blog - I'm the solo follower at the moment, but I have a feeling there's going to be some terrific stuff on there in no time. If you have a minute to spare you might like to pop over for a taster, and say hello

  4. My hubby's family are really big on catchphrases, they have loads and the whole family use them....when someone says something specific, you just know it will stick and will be said for many years to come....I love it, causes much amusement!

    Feel better soon, that all sounds rubbish, I go through the same, and there seems to be no sense or reason when I will wake up streaming and wheezing, but in our case living in a very damp house doesn't help.

    1. You have my sympathies! It's awful, isn't it?!

      It's the same here with the catchphrases - the smallest things catch on!

    1. I'm so glad that people have popped over and left comments to encourage Iza - she is super talented but not so confident at writing in English, although I really don't know why.

  10. I came to your blog from Hello Cotton - nice to meet you!

    In my family we call a half up, half down hairstyle an "Alice in Wonderland". I have no idea where it came from since she just wears an Alice band in the film!

    1. *waves* hello!!!!!! Thanks for visiting and saying hi x

      I love that! These things don't have to make sense at all. I mean, dry toast is ok for sickness, but it also applies to any kind of not feeling well.

  12. Hope you're feeling better! In my family, those little rubber bands you use in your hair to tie ponytails are called "julios". I have no clue why and didn't realize that wasn't actually what they were called until college!
