Okay Thomas, this is just for you.
Our friend's son Thomas has been urging us to have a "word and wisdom" blog post every week because we just love finding new words and sayings to use. So as promised it starts this week.
"It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation" - Herman Melville
Pretty apt for most people involved in craft or art.
Disingenuous - lacking in frankness, candour, or sincerity; falsely or hypocritically ingenuous; insincere.
What a great word - much nicer than saying someone's "telling you porkies".
