I do love Wednesdays when I can highlight a little-used work, give it a shake off and dust up ready for its chance to shine. The word I have chosen this week is a wonderful little word that is one of my mum’s favourites.

Twee.Β This is a fussy little word, all prim and proper, present and correct, quietly quaint, in its affected overly ‘nice’ manner. Gracious to a fault yet prudish, minding its p’s and q’s in its banality.

The net curtain twitcher, peeping out of the windows of a dainty, chi-chi house which is fastidiously neat and tidy. It is pretentious, la-di-da, very lady of the manor.

It is one word that I certainly cannot be accused of being!
