Yesterday we had lunch at the Ashmolean terrace restaurant with David Attenborough*. I can report that they did have the Wild Mushroom Risotto, and delicious it was too – as well it ought to be for the prices they charge.

I’d like to thank all those people partnering me on Draw Something – they know who they are – giving me loads and loads of drawing practice every day.
