29 Faces. Another ‘almost Diana’. There is something about her face that I find just out of reach and the sketch inevitably turns into a forensic examination of all her features ending up with ‘Spot the Difference’ challenge to anyone who happens to be nearby. I keep reminding myself that this is not a photograph but at the same time it’s great to achieve a degree of recognition. I might try one more tomorrow and then move on. So many faces so little time..
In other news I’m taking this Sunday off. For over a year we’ve been signed up to a deal with British Gas that gives us free electricity on a Sunday (it is definitely NOT the cheapest scheme now but I like the routine!). So Sunday is the day I do EVERYTHING. The washer and tumble dryer are running all day and I bulk cook meals for the week. Anything that involves a lot of electricity invariably happens on a Sunday. I look forward to Monday like other people look forward to the weekend. However today I don’t feel 100% so I’m rebelling and planning a much lazier day. I bought some books from a ‘Mega Book Sale’ at the library yesterday, two historical reference books, both about the seamy side of London. I now have an idea percolating for a novel populated with sordid characters!
