A is For Abaft & Arlee!
Today is the first day of the Blogging From A To Z Challenge 2013.
And before I dive in to my theme for this year I think I should mention another 'A' - the founder of the Blogging From A To Z Challenge - Arlee Bird!
This is my third year participating in this challenge and I'd like to thank Arlee for starting this whole thing up - thanks Arlee! :) You can visit his blog by clicking here.
So anyway I revealed my theme a couple of weeks ago and so the very first word I came to in my dictionary that I didn't know was:
abaft adv, adj naut closer to the stern of a ship [Old English be by + æftan behind]
So there you go - you learn something new everyday - some of you may have already known what 'abaft' meant but I know I certainly didn't. It's one of those words where I think I've heard the word before but if I had heard it I had no idea what it meant.
See you tomorrow...
