I just read this article about the art of pottering and while I'm not entirely sure we REALLY need to buy a book about it or how to do it, I do really love the potter and there really can be a "flow" to it. I've spent today doing a mixture of boring household stuff interspersed with pure potterage and I feel pretty chilled out. My DH is absolutely incapable of pottering and I feel quite sorry for him grin Does anyone else enjoy a good potter?

I don’t know how to Potter! What is it?

I potter about most Saturdays. Just doing odds and sods interspersed with playing scrabble or coffee breaks.

I'm all about a good potter. Lovely way to start the day.

I am all about the potter!

That book would do my head in though! Pottering is very private, I don't need some half baked woman telling me how to potter!🤣

I think I'm always pottering. I really need a routine and some purpose to my days 😬

I need to add I've not always spent my days like this. I've had a really stressful busy life until recently when I was sort of forced to potter 😅
