Sue’s considered trifles is a blog about words, sayings and idioms, particularly those in vogue during Sue’s childhood.  Little new material is being posted here – links to archive posts and new pages (of book reviews, for example).

Sue also blogs on Sue’s Trifles : tasty writing surprises (non-fattening!) and Sue’s words and pictures: writing and snapshots.  If you follow this blog, you might wish to transfer your allegiance to one or both the others.
