Let me explain. We moved house recently and had to complete a questionnaire for our mortgage advisor to show our monthly outgoings. I always seem to start these types of chores in the small hours, so with my bed beckoning I needed to quickly complete it. I opened the document and the whole form was formatted with Comic Sans font. Shudder.

Phew, confession over! Now let’s move on to my font happy place :)
