There all along, beans and object of desire.

1. In my pile of morning reading, a list of homographs makes me perk up -- I'd never noticed evening and evening or moped and moped.

3. Popping broad beans out of their pods -- I like the foamy lining.

2. A Freecycle pick-up. At 9am, I decide I want a soldering iron to fix my hairclip. At 4.30pm, I find one waiting on an assigned bench.

  1. Thanks for the homograph link - I love the twisty nature of our words. I like looking for words within words too. There are so many additional layers when you starting picking at them.

  2. Excellent link, Clare, thank you - not just for the homographs. It's the practical writing tips site I've been looking for.
