This is what happens when a person is entering Week 3 of lockdown and discovers, in the back of a cupboard, an unopened packet of origami paper. Finding a fiver down the arm of the sofa could not have brought me more joy. I might have spent the afternoon writing or sewing or even sitting in the sun and catching a few rays, but no. The urge to make Easter rabbits was irresistible.
As you’ll have noticed, ‘mindfulness’ has recently been having a moment. Personally, I’m a big fan of mindlessness. I favour activities that allow the over-busy brain to slip out of gear and coast. Knitting is good, unless it’s a tricky pattern. Origami is brilliant, once you’ve figured out the folds for whatever you want to create, and all it takes is a piece of paper.
The funny thing is, I only remember making two rabbits. Then I turned my back for a few hours and look what happened.
Happy Easter, dear readers.
Happy Easter, Laurie!
Many thanks for the enjoyment your books have given me. I have read and loved them all. Looking forward to many more.
Love the rabbits! You are using your time productively whereas I am ashamed to say I am not. But at least I have bingewatched all previous episodes of Line of Duty so am ready for the next series.
Nothing at all to do with your origami (although I’m full of admiration for the result!), but just found out today that there is a follow-up to “Dr Dan’s Casebook” out in print! Nothing could have cheered me up more in these rather dismal times… Love your writing, Laurie, please keep it up!
