      • I will. I couldn’t believe how cheap the postage quote was. When I was ordering I saw something about email a friend and we will give a 10% discount or some such. Not sure exactly what that was about but you should send them your post and mention my purchase as a result. They may give you a discount. I can give you my order number via a Facebook message if you like.

    • Happy days indeed! When I was at school, we were taught to write in italic – with pencils first and then ink pens with italic nibs. I think we were the other way round to you – we started off with cartridges and felt very grown up when we graduated on to ink bottles – a ‘write of passage’ you might say!! πŸ™‚
