Thing I've been looking at today
:
Fontcapture; I've been making a whole heap of weird fonts - this place is entirely free, doesn't involve any software and doesn't have a limit on how many fonts you can make/download.
Letters of note; Amazing letters by notable people, one of my favourites is this letter by Mick Jagger to Andy Warhol. I could read these letters all day long.
Making a gift bow from a magazine page; I'm going to try this one out.
Mystery Google; Type something in and results to something entirely different come out.
Dear Lily Allen from Dan Bull; I wholeheartedly agree.
Cardboard Cupcakes; Yep.
Pictures of kittens; If you don't go "Awww..." you're a horrible person :)
Twenty Ways To Be A Good Pen Pal; cute.

Today I became an aunt. My brother and I have been basically estranged for the last 6 months, but I got a call from my mum today to say that my brother's wife gave birth to a little girl today, Rose. It seemed really weird to have this huge, amazing thing going on today while I sat at home totally detached from it. I have some contradicting feelings regarding it, but I think I will try to make a visit to see them in the next few weeks. Happy birthday Rose.

Ps. I find it hilarious that upon deciding what name she would like to be called by her (first) grandchild my mum chose "Granny Allen" (her surname is Allen). She wrote this on Facebook and I replied "This made me lol", to which she replied "Glad to be the provider of lols". Ah, I love you mum.
