Well it has been a year...
After a good first eight months of regular posts my efforts in the last four months have been poor. March was going ok, then zero posts in April, two in May, one in June and this will only be my second in July - all in all very slack. I feel Instagram is the main culprit, becoming my first choice for quickly sharing a pen or ink image.
On the other hand the last 12 months have been very good to me buying-wise as I have added eight Pelikan pens (four M800, three M600, and a M101N) and 75 bottles of ink to my collection. In that time I have also sold six pens to fellow members of the Fountain Pen Australia Facebook group.
I still have ten pens on my want list but with no budget remaining till 2017, they are likely to remain on the list for a while longer.
Thank you to those that visit, I will endeavour to make it more worthwhile in year two.
