The Neatest Hand


^ TMshop Inspiration Pad

I spotted this handwriting exercise via Rachel's blog and thought it was sweet -
How it works:
Write down the following, snap a picture (or scan the document), post it, and tag others.

1. Name/Blog Name
2. Right handed, left handed or both
3. Favorite letters to write
4. Least favorite letters to write
5. Write: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
6. Write in caps: CRAB HUMOR KALEIDOSCOPE PAJAMAS GAZILLION
7. Favorite song lyrics
8. Tag people
9. Any special note or drawing

Here's my scrawl;



I'd love to see your handwriting :) Do play along!



Tonight I was meant to go to a Rockabilly Festival around the corner from my house with some friends, but I have done something horrible and unknown to my ankle. C has lent me his funny cane that has a duck's head on the top (see above picture) so I can limp around with it, ha. Tomorrow I'm catching the bus to Swansea to have lunch with my Nana. I'm trying my hardest to catch up with everyone I need to see before we go (9 DAYS!). I ended up sending out an awkward bulk message on Facebook inviting people to come hang with me next Friday at a designated pub. I am so not the awkward obligatory self-imposed going-away-party kind of person, but I seem to have organised something of the sort. I am very excited and totally frightened by this move, and I had a bit of a cry last night about being so far from my mum and sister. Wah. I know they'll visit and call though. And hopefully I can keep up with the blogging game while life is in transit. I also start back at uni (by correspondence) on Monday!

I was just going through photos on my camera and found this cute picture of Sophie just after she'd unwrapped her Diana mini this week. She was so happy!;



It was my blog's first birthday yesterday (it feels like this has been going on for much longer!). I was thinking of some way to celebrate it - I wanted to make some cupcakes in its honour or ice up some sugar biscuits shaped like letters and spoons, but I didn't get time this week. Regardless, I would like to thank you tenfold for being a part of a very enjoyable first blogging year - it has been so much fun :D It has changed my life in no small way and this blogging community brings me so much joy on a daily basis. When I'm done setting up my nest in Tasmania there's a bundle of things I'd love to give away to you!

Ps. I don't know if I told you, but I bought this bike the other day. It will be in Launceston when we arrive waiting for me. I'm not generally a pink kind of gal, but it was kind of irresistible;



Also, I'm considering participating in The Sketchbook Project, it looks very cool.

Hope your weekend is sweet!
