Bags, three-dimensional mathematics and the Mobius Loop

Being unfamiliar with the term Mobius loop, Lesley was intrigued by my demonstration of the idea with a piece of paper and some sticky tape. When I quoted the description as it being ‘ a chiral object  and a developable surface as it has zero Gaussian curvature.’ She agreed wholeheartedly . . . though I had no idea what it meant . . it’s amazing what level of insight two beers and a glass of prosecco can achieve . .  . .

Xmas day! Lesley bought me a bin bag for Xmas!!

It’s just what I wanted a bin bag – ir to be more precise a Tom Bihn bag: big enough for a paperback, small Moleskine, a selection of writing armaments, a phone and a slim wallet-i.e. virtually empty wallet! Well made, good design, light, and not a strip of Velcro insihgt..God how I hate that sound.

Meanwhile whilst I was stroking my new luggage Arhcie was enjoying the wrapping . . .

Lesley  also found this wonderful looking book on Alasdair Gray and Lesley’s son Ben bought me Keys to Drawing with Imagination by Bert Dodson, which I’m planning to work my way through in the New Year… it looks fantastic.

So hoping everyone else out there has been as lucky as me!

Nadolig Llawen!
