Monday #445


Last October I was writing about how it would be my last month of full furlough. I was right and also wrong, as although I went back to work in November, I was back on furlough January to March. This October I have finally come off furlough (as has everyone as the scheme has ended) and I am back at work my full hours. It’s only 16 hours a week but it does mean back to the evening shifts!

The Bom Annual

and

Cunningham and Petrov: The Mystery of the Missing Children chapter 25

Stuart Tresilian is my second-favourite Enid Blyton illustrator. This illustration of his shows the Mannering-Trents having a picnic in their fern-cave in the Valley of Adventure. I like how Tresilian wasn’t afraid to draw the scene from the rear of the cave, giving us a view of the children’s backs and the view out.
