Quentin Blake.

Romy's picture today from "Up With the Birds" by John Yeoman, illustrated by Quentin Blake. Lots of birds with helium balloons in their beaks:

And mine of I don't know what. I found the pic on his website and thought it was lovely. Obviously the original is infinitely better than mine but what the heck! The paper's gone a bit crinkly and the colours have come out differently on the scanner too :o(

We printed out some stuff about Himself for the project and also some about Bill Watterson for yesterday (apparently he is now a recluse and stopped doing Calvin and Hobbes in 1995.)

Talking of Calvin and Hobbes, we read some in bed last night before our Heidi chapter. Roo was really into it even though some of it needed explaining as it's more for adults. I've got enough books to keep us going for a year or two if we read a bit each night!

We've spent ages doing a 250 piece jigsaw today and Romy has made a booklet about each member of the family (including pets) full of interesting facts and drawings. We've also spent a fascinating hour on www.imdb.com looking up films and actors we like. Amazing site!

Off to swimming lesson now, and then home for bath, tea and T.V night :o) We only seem to watch it on Fridays now, but can't miss Green Wing and Will and Grace!
