Madness…school holiday style!

It’s the mid-year school holidays here in Perth, and now that we’re home from our trip to Broome (ouch – major reality check!) it’s become all about keeping the kids amused!

I don’t have the stamina (or the funds!) to take them out every day, so we try to have a few home days thrown in here and there. Sometimes it’s just us and we might bake, or maybe do some craft or play a board game.

{Word of the Day} Coolth

It’s been a while since my first word of the day, so I thought it was time to revisit this gem. I haven’t had any new flashes of vocabulary brilliance, but the word I’d like to share with you today is an old favourite of mine!wotd2 coolth

Word of the Day:



1. the sensation of moderate coolness, or state of being cool

2. the opposite of warmth

e.g. The evening coolth had begun to make shiver, so I decided to put on something warmer.

So there you have it. Jodi’s word of the day. Until next time, keep making up new words! The sillier, the better 😉
