Wee Things

My English grandmother used to use the word ‘wee’ to mean small or little. We never got accustomed to using the word that way and thought it was funny. We might say ‘the wee hours of the morning’ to mean very early. I used to look forward to the weekend when I was working. Now every day is like a weekend. The days run into each other. If you watched ‘Downton Abbey’ you heard the Dowager Countess of Grantham say,’ Weekend? What’s a weekend?’ She didn’t know what a weekend was because she never had to work. So me and the Dowager Countess have that in common now. We are a wee bit alike in that.


Stream of Consciousness Saturday, #SOCS, is hosted by Linda G Hill. The prompt word for today is ‘wee’, use the word ‘wee’ or use a word that contains it in the post.

    I am always confused about what day it is now. It’s a slight inconvenience in trade for having so much more freedom now that I’m retired. I don’t think our family used the word ‘wee’ but I think it’s cute.

      I finally agree that it is good to be retired and on my own schedule even if I am sometimes not sure what day it is. I think ‘wee’ was originally a Scottish word. I can hear it with a Scottish accent. Thanks for stopping by, Dawn.
