About

I am a weighed down flibbertigibbet.

Flibbertigibbet:          A middle English word in origin, meaning a frivolous, flighty or excessively talkative person.

Weighed down:          To be carrying or holding too much.

Hence the need for The Sober Garden blog; a space where I can sit a while and record my efforts to jettison the heavy stuff  – and probably post a lot of stuff I’m easily distracted by.

Thanks for dropping by….All aboard for a lighter life!

  1. Fibbertigibbet…I love learning new words…and one beautiful thing about this community is you can be yourself just as you are…so talk, or write to your heart’s content. Writing has helped save my life. I’m looking forward to following your journey!

  2. I said flibbertigibbet out loud today, remebering the movie Joe VS The Volcano with Meg Ryan. Happy to have come across your blog. Hello. 🙂

  3. I am also a Flibbertijibbet! I just didn’t know the word except from the Sound of Music’s “How do you solve a problem like Maria?” It’s the perfect word to make a comeback.
