Word and wisdom of the week

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.

Today's wisdom:

"It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation" - Herman Melville

Pretty apt for most people involved in craft or art.

Today's word:

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".
