Pottering

Cupcakes With Sugar FlowersPotter (verb) : Potter about or around or away. To be busy in a pleasant but aimless way.

Yep, today I've been mostly pottering about. I did a batch of ironing and then I tried making beads but it just wasn't working so I did some baking instead. Now I have the kitchen to tidy up - I make such a mess when I cook. I'm covered in icing sugar but hey, I've got ten cupcakes to show for it so I don't mind. When I've finished scraping buttercream off the kitchen tiles and sweeping flour up off the floor I shall iron the washing that's been drying on the line and then I'll do a spot of knitting.

Gosh, how exciting am I? I tell you, my exuberant vim and vigour is making me giddy.


(I'm being sarcastic with that last sentence, of course. I typed that in a sarcastic tone of voice but I thought I'd point it out in case you didn't pick up on that and you thought that I actually did think I was having an exciting Sunday and that ironing and washing up totally light my candle. They don't.)
