    Has anyone else hopped onto this 'Twitter Craze' lately? It's called Wordle , and its basically a game, where you have to guess what the word of the day is. The catch? It's only a 5 letter word, and you only get 6 guesses, guess it correctly? erm....the self gratification that you've done it correctly, run out of attempts to get it right? erm....I guess that we'll see.

    Anyway, I've found it fun for the past few days.

    Basically it was the 213th version of the puzzle and you got it in 5 out of 6 goes.

    It's a great game for sitting on the pot in the morning. Frustrating game though

    It’s great. Usually have a look at it when I’m having my first cuppa. Today’s was a tricky one. Got it in 5!

    Mrs Smug is really dyslexic and says everything back to front ...

    ... every day is a word puzzle trying to figure out wtf she's saying.

    Gave it a go and enjoyed it, took me five tries and I was baffled for a while. Cheers for the heads up I like stuff like that.

    Managed today's in the usual 4 guesses. It's frustratingly addictive

    Got mine in 2 attempts today, the quickest it's been solved by myself to date.


    My first guess was Joist ha ha
