• Finding the perfect font

    When I was at a college I studied A level media. This was a course I really enjoyed and excelled in, whilst also in a way paving and shaping my future blog. I loved being creative and trying different ways of putting out unique content. I didn’t just like to stick to the readily available templates, layouts and fonts, I used to gin download packs where I could ensure I was putting out something different and more unique.

    What I try and focus on during these tough timescale are the acts of selflessness and kindness that we are seeing everywhere. Its been so hard to see some of my colleagues and close friends in the most physically and emotionally destroying situations from sore blistered faces, getting ill themselves to staying away from their own families for long chunks of time to provide care to those who need it most whilst trying to keep their loved ones safe.

Our half term has just started so along with bonfires and firework displays we will be out and about collecting acorns, leaves and other natural treasures to bring home. One place the boys love to go, is what we call the “face tree” a big old oak tree that has eyes and a mouth with a huge branch arm! He looks really spooky and even more so in the dusky light of the clocks going back. The…
