many of us work
in the IT industry most of us still do
a fair amount of handwriting for various
different reasons even if you only even
write your shopping list how maddening
is it to reach for a pen and its absolutely
useless! Itchy, scratchy points or blobs
of ink on the page are infuriating and
how cool do you look at meetings when
you pull out a really stylish pen. I mention
it because as a Christmas gift many years
ago I received an absolutely gorgeous
pen that I wouldnt be without.
I still write all work notes in free hand
(yes, honestly!) and in fact, spend at
least several hours a day with an A4 pad
and pen. So how lovely to give the gift
of a really nice pen this year and especially
