Welcome to the SHACSHAC-Shack!! It’s getting longer!
SAFE, HAPPY AND CREATIVE STAY HOME AND CRAFT
What’s with the hail and snow?! Are you getting it too, or is it just the Southeast that’s just turned into Narnia? Well, on a positive note, that’ll slow down the beachcombers at Whitstable!
I do like a crossword don’t you? Not a cross word! A crossword puzzle! The English language is so rich, so full of exceptions to the rule and pitfalls too!
Did you see that one about commas?
My 3 favourite things are eating my family and not using commas.
Brilliant. When I studied linguistics, one of my favourite things to do was go for a walk in a dictionary. And when I was teaching English as a foreign language in Germany, oh how I wish I had written down all the bloopers that the students made.
Language to me is like music to Dave. I am listening to The Return of the Native, by Thomas Hardy at the moment. Read by the late Alan Rickman. Or should I say performed? What a voice. Brilliant. Escapism at its very best.
And here is something to keep you company for half an hour. Our dear friend Hazel Edwards is another booky person. Always got her head in a book, has Hazel! She has offered to compile weekly Clarity Crosswords for us all, to keep us connected and distracted. How cool is that?! I may even have a go myself. Compiling one that is!!
So here it is then, Crossword No. 1
We’ve added a Digi-Download for you, so that you can print it and fill it in. We will build a little book of them during the coming weeks, just for fun.
If you struggle with the answer to anything, don’t worry! I’m sure Hazel will furnish us with the answers next Sunday!!!
I think a few WORDSEARCHES would be cool too….Or should that read cool, too? Depends how old you are, I guess.

Stay safe, enjoy your Sunday, and don’t forget to join me on the Facebook Clarity Page tomorrow at 10 am. I’m going to try streaming live for the first time from this ’ere SHACSHAC Shack!! All you need to bring to the party is a Micron pen, a pencil or a biro and a sheet of copy paper. Let’s have some fun. And bring the kids too!
I’m no Bob Ross – what a legend – but I bet we can have a little crafty workout together!
Love and Hugs,
PS. Don’t forget to click the ads down the side. There’s one in particular about Resilience that is very interesting .
