Silver lining

Well, yet another shop being a pain. One of the things I wanted to buy was a pen for Sandra - she is taking up creative writing and likes fountain pens. Yet another shop let me down today and I gave up, and took her to a shop in Regents Street instead. Just as well as I saw the pen I had picked and it looks nothing like the web sites and she hated it. So silver lining in this all as if they had shipped I would be distance selling directive returning them now.

So, a limited edition cross fountain pen, dragon engraved, with gold nib. Very nice, and very Sandra.

The one on-line shop that just worked was one I was buying some acid from, and that was waiting on the doorstep when I got home this evening.


  1. Waiting on the doorstop? Hope they aren't made of limestone!

  2. "Very nice, and very Sandra" - Except the CHINESE dragon..
