Well, that wasn't easy. I reckon some of the words could be used in either a positive or negative connotation, depending on personal belief and cultural upbringing. I couldn't think of one for the positive X. I did look in the thesaurus I have here but tried not to cheat too much. Any suggestions for the X?

This weekend I am laying low. I have been trying to not spend any money because we are all going on a trip to Sydney next weekend and visiting Paddy's markets. It is something I promised to do with my daughter for the last 2 school holidays. This will be the first time the whole family, Dad, Mum and all the kids have gone anywhere together for quite a long time, so it should be good. Albeit expensive with accommodation, food, transport and shopping in the centre of the city. The kids all have their own income now, not big, but an income just the same so that should ease it a bit.
But...I might just go over to the Kingston bus depot markets this afternoon and get some of the delicious crusty wood fired Italian bread, it is so delicious. Then I might drop into the fresh food markets at Fyshwick later in the afternoon and try to get there when they drop the prices at the fish market, because they don't open again until Thursday each week. Last time I managed to get 5 beautiful blue swimmer crabs at 1/2 price. That place and the Kingston markets are foodie heaven. Especially the Kingston markets because you get to taste everything before you buy it.

Staying home by myself sucks! (Pete's working)
Bye
Love Linda.

P.S. Why is that bit showing up in big text when it isn't on here. Too bad, not bothering to fix it, even if I understood how.

how about xeriff, a gold coin in Turkey. Probably cheating but gold could be construed as positive. Loved this post. took some thinking and time. I am a cross word fanatic so any thing to do with words fascinates me.. Have a nice trip to Sydney. and please quit describing that bread, I'm addicted to bread and your description made my mouth water.

I would drop the E and create Xtr'ordinary. Big word. Lots of punch. Bit of a cheat though. **sigh**

Happy vacation, Linda. The crusty bread sounds mouthwatering.

G'day Linda. ~~ I am so sorry those boys are causing you so worries. Young devils. I enjoyed your alphabet You did well.

Before I was a Mum was a good one and we must have done something right for our kids to grow up into decent ppl and see their kids grow up good ppl as well. My grandmother had 10 kids and was fond of saying,"Not a dud among them." Take care, my friend.
Love and Hugs, Merle.

G'Day Dear Linda ~~ Great post and well written and honest. You may have the water police after you.
Glad you liked the jokes and thanks for the well wishes for me. Do you make stews and casseroles with steak and mushrooms, instead of kidneys.
Sorry Peter can't eat kidneys.
Take great care, Love Merle.
