It was a lovely sunny day and a perfect opportunity to visit the Lego Shop in Brighton.
I wanted to buy the new Christmas Lego set for my collection. (I ended up with a little more than intended. Oops!)
I’m always interested to see different mobiles and buses so I just had to go and say hello.
I asked if it would be okay to take a photo and also asked was the van special and what did it do.
The young man said it was their home and that they travelled around in it.
I told him I was fascinated to see different vehicles and told him about my bus stories. He took my card and commented on Jay-Jays name so I told him the names of alll of my buses and their books.
I thought it sounded a lovely name.
So, on my return home I looked up the definition of the word.
To coddiwomple is “to travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination
It certainly looks like a fun way to coddywomple through life.
I love the name and love the look of this magical van and occupants.
Don't you just love the word a perfect name for a mobile project!
A mobile project can do so much and take on many disguises.
A perfect place for a Halloween surprise?
Most of all I learnt a new word and now I am coddiwompling through life.
I will get there.
