Sunday Word: Mither

Inspired by Sunday's episode of Dowton Abbey.

mi·ther [ˈmaɪðə]:
origin: (late 1700s) unknown origin; possibly Welsh, moedrodd= to worry or bother

to fuss over or moan about something; pester or irritate.

Mrs. Patmore: *sigh* "It's a shame. We're to end by mithering again."
- Season 4, Episode 7
