distractedmom: , are those lyrics from an America song? Feb 24, 2023 19:19:31 GMT
distractedmom: No more fountain pens until this summer. No more fountain pens until the summer. No more fountain pens until the summer. (I have to repeat it to myself so I don’t order this Jinhao you all are talking about.) Feb 24, 2023 19:20:51 GMT
stompie: - :haha: resistance is futile! I am thinking of getting the full colour range. The EF nib is really great. I'll shut up now. Feb 25, 2023 9:40:22 GMT
radellaf: Just the X159 and a Karas brass retrakt rollerball, so far. No inky fingers from the X159 so far. The grip is way bigger diameter than the nib and has kind of an edge, so discomfort makes me change my grip before I have a chance to touch the nib/feed. Feb 27, 2023 16:00:36 GMT
although: Planning a trip to the UK. Super excited, it's been nearly two decades :) Feb 28, 2023 2:39:59 GMT
distractedmom: , you are a bad influence! :) Feb 28, 2023 4:55:25 GMT
distractedmom: , this is exciting! Can’t wait to hear more Feb 28, 2023 4:56:03 GMT
Steph Walford: hope you have fun :) Feb 28, 2023 15:21:42 GMT

Lupine: yes, they are. Mar 1, 2023 22:52:44 GMT
Mia: Royal Mail announced price rise for April. Not a happy bunny, is a mild way of putting it Mar 3, 2023 12:15:51 GMT
radellaf: proboards, in their infinite wisdom, have banned my VPN's ASN... IOW, will have to mostly catch up here on work days. Mar 3, 2023 22:27:50 GMT
Steph Walford: Another price rise :o Mar 5, 2023 22:18:03 GMT
radellaf: I hear they are planned to become more frequent than once a year, in the USA. I'd rather they just did some forecasting and did higher raises less often. Mar 6, 2023 15:26:17 GMT
Mia: at least we've got some Non-value indicator (NVI / forever) stamps.. so can do a little forward planning ourselves! Received order from Philatelink Mar 7, 2023 0:18:12 GMT
stompie: Hello and Welcome! Tell us more about yourself Mar 11, 2023 7:57:02 GMT
stompie: Ordered 2 more Jinhao X159 EF Coffee and Black! :peninkbottle: Mar 12, 2023 16:35:15 GMT
distractedmom: , I keep looking at them, but I am being strong Mar 13, 2023 1:26:08 GMT
Steph Walford: Welcome :D Mar 14, 2023 13:13:12 GMT
