* CWTCH : Welsh word for an affectionate hug. There’s no literal English translation, but its nearest equivlent is “safe place”. So if you give someone a cwtch, you’re giving them a tender hug. 
It can also be used as a place to store things safely (usually a cupboard under a staircase)
“Give me a cwtch” / “Put your jacket in the cwtch”
