The Squarish Thingy With The Figure On Top

…(cheers for the title Frag’)….

…the squarish thingy with the figure on top is bro’ in-law Steve’s (significant) birthday gift and his “cake” decoration….

…twine wound in two directions around a custom made cardboard box, over a plain brown paper wrapping….glued on all edges and across centre of flat surfaces to frustrate any attempt at cutting….pinned at corners whilst drying to keep edge twine in place….

…hand written instructions added….

…two or so hours to “wrap”….

…some beer may have been involved….

….”brown paper parcels all tied up with string…(er…”twine”)….these are a few of my favourite things” – Mary Poppins….

…but possibly not Steve-o’s….(any more)….

…(note sticking-plaster over twine-cut)….

…at least twenty minutes of family entertainment….

…and the present?…

…800 Twinings Earl Grey teabags….

…(Twinings…twine…get it?)….

…and a giant Belgium biscuit instead of a cake….

…tea…check…biscuit…check…golfing reference….check….

…successful first project from the new work bench.
