Faffing about

I'm probably going to be rather quiet for the next few weeks. I have friends and family visiting - the family arrive the day the friends leave - so I doubt that I'll have much time for blogging. Not that I have much to show you, anyway: I've been faffing about doing more spring cleaning. I should be wading through the mountain of receipts so that we can get on with filing our taxes (ugh, I don't like March).
.
I could show you the blanket I'm crocheting for my son, but I'll save that for a time when it is actually bigger than a scarf... (That might not be for some time yet...)
.
So today's word of the days is
UK English: faff v. = wasting time doing unnecessary things that aren't relevant to the task in hand. I don't know the American equivalent. Maybe Americans don't faff about...

PS. I have been tagged by a couple of people in recent weeks, but I'll wait 'til I come back from my blogging break to post them - I hope that's ok.
