Another mere sketch this week, I’m afraid, for another essential component of the Great British Summer has materialised this week – with a vengeance: I am struck down by the dreaded lurgy – operating from beneath a veritable blizzard of *ahem* soggy tissues and flanked by tissue boxes and Strepsils on one side and a bottomless mug of Lemsip (ugh) on the other – and, as such, am struggling (even more than usual… Astonishing, I know) to be effective in anything *sniffle*.
Touched by the expressions of concern for last week’s doleful (distraught, even) bunny, I thought I’d show him, for this week’s Illustration Friday * challenge refresh, fully restored by a cuddly-bear hug and combating the uncomfortable heat of the baking midsummer sun (ha! I’m gazing out on yet another damp, grey July vista here in Staines…) with a refreshing shower courtesy of his new friend and a contraband hosepipe. Hilariously (…), we are still ‘in drought’ here and restricted to watering by bucket, so I suppose I should really have shown him hurling a pail of water over the over-heated bunny, but a momentary drenching by bucket just doesn’t strike me as quite so refreshing – and too short-lived 🙂
