Word of the Week - 76

FAFF
This week's word is a colloquial noun which is used to describe something that needs a lot of effort or which causes slight problems.

Making your own pasta is a bit of a faff so I always buy it ready-made.

It can also be used as a verb to mean spend too much time doing something unimportant or unnecessary instead of doing the things you should be doing.

Stop faffing about and do your homework!
John has been faffing around with the car all day.
