Chuffed: Informal and very British way of saying pleased. I'm chuffed with all sorts of things at the moment, from lots of new work to the fact that the weather is due to warm up a bit. The dictionary says chuffed means "very pleased" but I would generally use it more in the sense of mildly pleased or pleasantly pleased. To be "very pleased", I'd have to be "chuffed to bits".
