|Wordy Wednesday|

Words are a big part of what makes this world an interesting place. There are sooooo many words, but these days a lot of words are no longer used….. Every Wednesday I shall give you 10 words! Mostly random words, or words that I have written down while I had my nose buried in a book and came upon it.
