Spelling error - should read too verbose!
Speaking of paraphenalia does anyone these days use a blotter or make penwipers at school for Christmas gifts? Of course not and I dare say most of you fellow bloggers wouldn't even know what a pen wiper was would you?! Those who do will probably keep quiet so as not to reveal their ages!
My favourite writing implement was - until it ran out - a cheap roller ball pen which someone had left on my desk at work!
As I said I don't think I will be doing a handwritten post too often - I found my thoughts didn't flow properly and I couldn't get them down as fast as usual! However it would be a pity if we lost the art of handwriting both for letters and for this sort of thing too as can you imagine in years to come people collecting vintage e-mails and using them in their craft work or scrapbooking etc? And there is nothing like a real letter taken into the garden to be enjoyed over a cup of tea is there? Speaking of tea I must go and put the kettle on - anyone fancy a cuppa?!!
