As far as I am concerned, journalling is a pen and ink experience. There is nothing more tempting that the blank page of an A4 book and the joy of actually putting pen to paper. Blogging has its own joys, as does creative writing – for which I invariably use Microsoft Word. It now seems that my daily date with my trusty slimline Sheaffer fountain pen is threatened. Despite searching ebay and the world wide web I am unable to come up with replacement ink cartridges.

It is possible to buy a converter and revert to bottled ink. But I don’t think I want to go there. So I shall keep hunting online. Unless, of course anyone has a spare pack in the back of a drawer……

    I may come across that in my mother’s things. Slowly, I am beginning to clear the clutter. Where my goal is one box per day, I feel a great sense of accomplishment when I have cleaned out one box. It’s so exhausting going through not only my own but my mother’s and grandmother’s stuff.
    Along that line, I started a new blog at


    (if I find cartridges I’ll let you know!)

    Thanks, Lydia, I have discovered the cartridges for this pen are no longer made – so I shall have to make do with a converter and ordinary ink. Enjoy going through the clutter!
