‘Coffee break’ and ‘crossword’ are words that fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. A crossword is also a great way to improve your vocabulary, and I’m all for that!

Word of the day
Our featured clue is:
16 Down – clever (informal) (6)
and the answer is ‘bright’.
‘Bright’, an adjective, is used in everyday language to talk about someone who is intelligent or quick-witted.
‘Everyone knows that she’s bright – it’s no surprise she passed all her exams’.
It can also be used to describe something that gives out a lot of light or is shining. For example;
‘The weather was hot and the sun was dazzlingly bright’.
You can use this word to mean a bold or vivid colour.
‘The shirts were in a variety of colours, from pastels to brights’.
Finally, we can use ‘bright’ to mean happy:
‘You’re bright and cheerful today, have you had some good news?’
bright eyed and bushy tailed = fully of energy and ready for the day ahead
