If I don't write to empty my mind, I go mad. ~ Lord Byron
It was my birthday on Tuesday; I'm not going to tell you how old I was, not because I am old now but so that when I am actually old you won't know. I often have sudden, unprompted desires for something totally unnecessary. Usually these are large, unobtainable things; lighthouses, 16th century galleons, flights on Concorde etc. But when my Mum asked me what I'd like for my birthday I happened to be craving a type writer. I know nothing about type writers, but I just wanted one, badly. After that day, however, I forgot completely about it. So on Tuesday I was surprised and delighted to unwrap this. I believe it is 1940's/1950's, although I'm not sure. It works, it types in black and red (awesome, right?) and it rings a little bell when it gets to the end of the line. Other than that I know nothing about it, except I already love it and just had to share it with you.
Now I'm going to try and work out how to use it properly!
