I’m going to buy a refillable pen! A colleague of mine has hounded me about this for years, and she’s absolutely right. It’s ridiculous that we buy and throw out so many plastic, disposable pens every year. So while I’m not going to go full-on fountain pen, I am going to get one that I can refill the ink. The one my colleague has is lovely, and I’ve often admired it. There’s something more sophisticated about writing with a good quality pen. “It has to feel good in your hand” to quote my favourite West Wing president.
So added to my shopping list is a refillable pen. I’ll post a pic of my new purchase once I’ve tracked one down. Or perhaps a pic of myself writing with it, looking all smart-like.
