What?!!! surprised That was just a very half-hearted last jab, just because it was a word that fitted in there, but not thinking that it was the actual word you're looking for! giggle

Oh well ... I'm not quite prepared now to be thinking of a new word ... gimme a little while to think of one. sidestep

I thought you might know it, Feather, since it's used to serve up porridge.

Just checked and Collins English dictionary has:
"Porringer: a small dish, often with a handle, used to serve soup, porridge, etc.
Word origin: changed from Middle English potinger, poteger, from old French potager, from potage soup, contents of a pot, see pottage."

The origin of the word porridge, from Collins:
"Variant (influenced by Middle English porray pottage) of pottage".

Oops, I edited that because porringer is not the origin of the word porridge after all, but before I posted up the edited version you'd already replied, Kitkat. (See my previous post above).

Haven't yet found a word that fits, Kitkat, and I suppose it's the same for everyone.
Still got the little grey cells working on it though. scratchhead cheesy

I was thinking conspirational or conspiratorial but they're 14 letters.
So perhaps conspirative ?  Oops, no, that ends in an "e" not an "l".
Oh dear, off to have another think... sidestep

Haha, Feather, it is very difficult to count the letters when there are more than 10, because as soon as you blink you have to start over again.
