Taught two lessons today - the last two of the academic year. All that remains is to go to a leaver's assembly tomorrow morning and then I can turn my attention to ...
reading, writing, playing the piano, lolling about, sleeping, doing what I please
The long weeks of searing hot weather continue; at lunchtime I filled tubs of water as a first stage in the watering-the-garden process;
the small red and blue tubs contain around 8 l water, and there are 3 of them
the big red tub takes 6 small red or blue tubs to fill
the green tubs take 4 small tubs
the big blue tub takes 3 small tubs...
that's 24 small tubs of water, at 8 l each which is 24 trips to and from the kitchen tap carrying a total of 144 l water, or 144 kg. I've used just about all that water now, watering the garden.
I've also been experimenting with going over a pen sketch with a wet paintbrush... (copy of a sketch in a "how to draw book")
and daring to risk adding colour to an ink sketch, using my wonderful colour-change multi-8 pencil

Hmm - I'm happy enough with these for now.
