(Further) Confessions of a Faffer

This afternoon’s task was to organise my thoughts for the coming work week instead of just turning up at my desk tomorrow morning and hoping for the best. I have actually spent two hours trying to make an origami bear, Mk II, and failing. Paper too thick. Mk I was okay-ish but it was made with pink origami paper and I really, really wanted a brown bear. So it’s now nearly 4pm, my work thoughts aren’t organised and I’m bear-less. I thought you’d like to know.

But yes, urged on by readers I did buy the Great Dixter Cookbook. Still more excuses for faffing. When your origami bear keeps falling on his snout, toss him in the bin and make a pear tart.

    Is that what’s known as a Pararhyme, Laurie?
    I am glad to see that you are making good and creative use of your time. Onwards and upwards!
