I am definitely learning new words and expressions reading this book and we always ensure we’ve got a dictionary ready. When Baines gave May, his auntie, a piece of jewellery for his 60th birthday she exclaimed she was ‘as gay as a wasp in a window’! This shows the change of use of words over the years. When we are dancing about with emotion, I would never have thought of it being likened to a wasp dancing about but the more you think of it the expression of the wasp somehow fits rather well.
