My Oxford dictionary defines faff as a verb, meaning to spend time in ineffectual activity. So here is a little bit of faffing!
It's been too cold to go out in the garden and start pulling up, tidying up, digging up and planting up. Instead I've dug out Annie Sloan's paint and had a little dabble on some Ikea drawers
When we were down in Surrey a good friend of mine gave me some of her china she no longer needed. She knew I loved it and had my eye on it and I probably asked her one day in a not very subtle way if I could have it! Thank you Mrs T it's lovely and now we can have cake and proper tea in proper cups and I can faff around with my digital tablet and computer. Dabbling away to my hearts content while waiting for the weather to warm up so I can get out and engage in some less ineffectual activity in the garden!
Beautiful faffing! Love the sketches!
I'd like to faff around and make sketches like that.
Do you use that David Hockney app Brushes?
Hello Lucille! I use a very old graphics or digital tablet as they are now called. The nib in the pen has long since broken so I replaced it with a filed down wooden cocktail stick. It isn't perfect but it will do! I'd love an i-pad. David Hockney used Brushes 3 a basic drawing app free on the internet.....but then he's David Hockney and can make anything amazing! I use an old version of photoshop. I should probably do a blog post about it...one day!
Not faffing at all - I'd say hugely productive! I can't imagine what you'd achieve if you really got stuck in - oh, wait, I can: I just need to go backwards in your blog to when the house was being built.......
Love the sketches and love the china - Blue Denmark is one of my favourites.
love the china and the sketchings! i always associate faffing with a bit of tongue-in-cheek silliness ... some good-natured downtime.
