    Default Aussie scratcher...

    Hello from Greendale Victoria, Australia.
    I'm pleased to be here and looking forward to interacting / learning.
    Essentially I'm a Designer, but with a few other careers under my belt too.
    I've recently reintroduced myself to the pleasure of REAL handwriting after too many years punching a keyboard.
    Cheers.

    Very generous welcomes, thanks so much. I've recently been rediscovering REAL handwriting with REAL pens (and also REAL drawing on paper), after too many years doing it all digitally.
    Yesterday I received in the post from my 101 year old mum, a package of about a dozen old pens. Couple of Watermans, Parkers, Shaeffers etc. All in lovely condition, but needing TLC after many years of non-use.
    She was a Headmistress, distinguished with an O.B.E. for services to education. And of course, after her brain, her heart, and her voice (!) her next most important tool was her pen.
    Lovely to have these family heirlooms safe in my hands where they'll be treasured and used.

    I shall be posting a photo of them all for help in identifying them. Cheers, Jools

    Welcome! I'm sure you'll find many friendly, helpful folks here, and will learn a lot. And I'm sure quite a few of them/us would love to see those photos!

    I've been practicing my penmanship nightly for a couple of months and have noticed a nice improvement. I use this skill to write letters to family and friends. They appear to enjoy receiving a hand written letter or note.
