Would it be very wrong to start this post saying how much I despise [finicky] technology at times? Because a) I really do and b) it’s the main reason you haven’t seen any new posts on here lately. Two drafts ready to publish, plans nixed by either the internet or my laptop crashing on me. [Insert as many swearwords as you can think of here].
Today, however, is not the day to complain about but cherish the amazing ability of the internet in allowing us to find great posts by many wonderfully creative people all over the world. Without further ado, here are some of my recent favourites for your [Sunday or whenever you see this] reading pleasure.
