While we're in the shop, if its quiet we take the opportunity to get some drawing done.
Today I drew some trees which will form part of the Pennine landscape in one of our new designs.
Whilst I toiled creatively the phone engineer was putting the phone line in (you have to wait at least three weeks to get this done now BT Openreach have decided that two engineers is probably enough to cover Greater London and the Midlands)
Our engineer seemed like a nice fellow, was very efficient and knew most of the words to Folsom Prison Blues.
He looked over my shoulder and said "Are you doodling?"
Luckily he didn't spot this poorly executed deer (with elk ghost next to it) which I hastily concealed with the order book lest he make a disparaging comment;
"It has the embarrassed look of one who has accidentally trumped"
He might have said.
And rightly so.
