Fave Friday

Yes, I expect everybody knows I love stationery, even if they don't know me. I am a teacher, after all. I have a particular fondness for these pens. The label on them says they are Pilot G-1 0.7 pens and they are definitely my favourites. I was feeling quite sad this week because I had run down two red pens on the marking and was left with only a red biro - absolutely fine in normal circumstances, but requires a little more pressure than a gel pen and therefore not so good for protracted marking sessions, as they make the old hand ache.

Luckily I rediscovered several red versions in a pot of old pens last night. I bought a whole box of green pens during last year's Greenpengate (when we were told we had to mark in green, ugh, but then nobody checked anyway) and I could do with a red box now, too. The purple one is especially special because it's a bit glittery. They are very smooth to write with and comfortable to hold. My only problem is that they are not very widely available, in my experience.

Happy weekend! The mammoth term of exhuastion is finally over!
