Same, Same, But Different – Saturday Mix, 22 January 2022

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 22 January 2022!

This week we are diving into the depths of our thesaurus and exploring the world of synonyms.

Same Same But Different
Your ‘Same Same But Different’ task is to take the five challenge words and NOT use them in your writing. That’s right, you need to dig out your thesaurus and find a synonym for each word instead.

Your words are:
