I was a bit frustrated with my drawing today. I haven’t done any half-pleasing for a while and so I resorted to doing a blind contour drawing and then modifying it. The husband likes it – for, yes, it is he – and there is something to it I think. Hmmm. Well, at the very least, I have done the drawing for today and – gosh! – it isn’t even Olympics themed! Tomorrow the clan will be watching the opening ceremony on iPlayer. We don’t have a TV in the house for which we save the princely sum £145.00 a year – the cost of the UK TV license fee. I can’t say that I’m feeling the itch to get one even with the Olympics upon us. I’m sure we’ll survive. So, I guess this little ramble is a pre-warning that despite living in the host city of the 2012 Olympics, it is extremely unlikely that anything approaching ‘sporty’ will jump (hah!) into these digital leaves. When I was at school, it took me half a minute to run 100m. Half a minute – on a good day.
