After the wettest winter on record and the unexpected snow causing havoc at the start of the year (and keeping going by the looks of things!) we are all looking forward to the arrival of Spring. We hope it heralds some better weather and dream of it being the precursor to a beautiful, sunny and above all hot Summer!
It is also the time of new life with lambs frolicking in fields, busy birds building nests and baby bunnies running around. Plus, if your family is anything like mine, Spring is crammed full of celebrations that require a little imagination present wise and eating far too much cake. From a birthday pretty much every weekend from now until the end of April and Easter being early this year it is pretty easy to get party fatigue!
We thought we’d help you out with some light-hearted suggestions for words, and their definitions, that you could gift this season:
Sprogfest – a word created to describe the abundance of new life in the animal kingdom that occurs particularly in the spring time.
Birthdatigue – Experienced by many parents the world over and not just confined to the spring months, but especially prevalent at this time of year. It describes that sense of tiredness and resignation that overcomes you as you look at the fridge and realise it is plastered in birthday party invitations from varying children you are not entirely certain your child even knows at school.
Mumalicious – The best way to describe how fabulous, wonderful and delicious your mum really is. Just so you can get extra brownie points if you need to get her a present.
But why use ours??!! Add your own words to our database, with their special and personal definitions this season of gift giving, and make your celebrant feel super special using our Create A Word feature.
