  1. If I was going to "win a special armour" I think I would assume it was going to be a full suit of armour. But "win special armour" might mean winning a bit of the full set: perhaps a breastplate or gauntlets only.
  2. In Welsh, the adjective comes after the noun it relates to. Many years ago, I bought a pink mobile phone. I asked my Welsh-speaking boyfriend "What is this in Welsh?" ,expecting a beautiful, ethereal Welsh phrase to roll from his lips. "ffôn pinc" he said - which is pronounced "Phone pink". So from then on it was always called my "phone pink".
  3. "Time to tuck in" would make me (English-woman) think you meant to eat something. "Tucked in" does mean to go to bed though, so perhaps a wee change to something like "Time to get tucked in" or "Time for tucking in" would work a little better?

But if someone asked you to come to their house for supper, it might be a main meal, but could be a bit lighter. And could be later in the evening

I am a published author (books and magazine articles) and regular blogger. I am a serious bookworm and my poor tiny house is bursting with books. I have recently started to study Mandarin Chinese which I am really enjoying. Such a fascinating language. Like
