Train journeys

Lots of culture this weekend. The National Theatre production of ‘The Coram Boy’ on Friday which was fantastic (this link shows excerpts from the play) and the Henri Rousseau exhibition at Tate Modern today. One of the things that is so lovely about having several children is the different combinations you can have on an outing. Today it was my turn to be with just the two older boys. I failed miserably at catching their likenesses on the train but used the drawings to play with different shades of blue. Tom doesn’t usually look so gormless, but he has a horrible cold at the moment and can only breathe with his mouth open.

These are really great! I like the shades of blue -- your photoshop skills amaze me!

Photoshop skills are very useful for making a silk purse out of a sows ear!

It's terrible when you lose your gorm. On the other hand, these are really nice drawings, Julie, photoshop or not. Hope your boy is feeling better today.
