Brit' Word of the Day!
Well it's been awhile, but at work yesterday I said something that caused some puzzled looks, although I know some of you will definitely know these. So we have a BWOTD and phrase: "Why are you all tarted up today then?" 'Tarted up' = dolled up derived from: 'Tart' = a Floozy Neither of these expressions are terribly derogatory in England, they certainly can be, but if it's said between friends it's more of a jokey thing. "You old tart" was very much an affectionate teasing term between my girlfriends!And just for a giggle, here's a piccie of me and my girlfriends back home, providing a perfect example of 'tarted up' on a Christmas night out a few years ago!
