Happy Monday everyone!

To enjoy the best season of the year and after 100 posts I’m taking a little break so thanks for reading so far and see you in September!

Today’s word is cushy, an adjective we use to describe a job that is undemanding, easy and involves little effort for big rewards (and it may be useful to note that this word can have slightly pejorative connotations).

Mable, for example, has the cushy job of supervising the cushions here at The English Garden, yet is the first to complain about how hard she works.
