Still Going...


Sorry to all the children I have been visiting this week, that I've not been able to post blogs about our fun time together or show photos, but I haven't had a moment to draw breath since the crack of dawn on Monday morning.

I'd like to show you some of the train portraits I've been sketching on my travels up and down too, but there's no time to scan them. Every night, I get in from a visit, have my dinner, re-pack my bags for the next morning, then collapse! So these are sketches from earlier trips, just to jolly things up.

Typically, I've caught a cold and, from Tuesday on, have been up to my eyes in paracetamols and having to stop every few minutes to blow my nose. REALLY hoping my voice lasts out this time, especially since it's only just over 2 weeks since I got it back after my last attack of laryngitis!

Anyway, cold allowing, today I'm in Grantham with the Federation of Children's Book Groups, celebrating the Red House Children's Book Awards. Wish me luck!

Always really interesting train sketches. You always make the people look interesting and individual - some people's people sketches are rather anonymous. Hope you can calm down and recover at the weekend!

I always enjoy your train sketches, Lynne. I hope things calm down a little so you can rest and get better from your cold.

Thanks all! Finally made it through to the other end(phew). Still have the cold, but still have a voice, so thank goodness for that at least.
