Jo goes to a classical concert with me (Day: I HATE classical music) and spends the evening merrily drawing away in the dark on a notebook, copying the pictures from the very nice programme as she listens to some of the top hits from the classical oeuvre.
(Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, Mendelssohn’s Overture to a Midsummer Night’s Dream, Bizet’s Carmen and Grieg’s Peer Gynt).
I see her pictures and I try not to giggle in the dark.
This one of the lady in the blue dress really made me crack up.
And I was very sorry when she saw my constipated face and whispered: But my drawing is not NICE, mummy!
Although she doesn't enjoy classical music either (none of them do), and it looks like I will be going for all these classical adventures solo as I get older and they live their own lives (KK is no fan), she is the nicest one to bring for concerts right now because she is twitch-free.
Lovely little Jo.
