eg I once cut out different shapes from well known French newspapers to cover the flat roof of one of my buildings.

However the idea is still valid. Here is a charming little tinplate aeroplane I bought in France this year.
The printed word appears all over its shell - presumably from the re-cycled food cans from which it's made.
So, I tried the newspaper approach again, this time in order to cover the wooden strips in front of the Gare du Nord.

Currently listening to:
The Optimo podcast on Fabriclive that I've had almost on a loop for the last 10 days or so.

Last night's dinner:

Reading these two books in tandem - each cost less than £3 to download to my Kindle.
Drumming practice update:
Everyone (except me) agreed that this morning's Samba drumming session was excellent.
I still seem unable to transfer all the techniques that I practise at home from there to the rehearsal setting.
Maybe I'm being hyper-self-critical.
It could be a form of nerves (something that I don't suffer from when actually performing in front of an audience) or simply that the tempo of the pieces is higher at rehearsal; most probably a mixture of the two.
