This may be my last entry…

Having had a conversation with various people regarding my previous entry, it seems my opinions regarding erasable pens were mostly correct. I has had the weird effect of making Mrs CthuIu use her Pilot Frixion in the ‘correct’ way i.e. erasing her mistakes rather than crossing them out.

Recently there has been a slew of erasable pens hitting the market and I was ‘lucky’ enough to be given a free one by the guys at CultPens (still not a sponsor – still can be if they fancy it).

Before getting on the train I ran off to the local Muji store to have a look at their pencils. Read More

No reading at all today – it’s a Saturday so there is so much more to be done.

First port of call for us was the last day of the Birmingham Hidden Spaces event. We were allowed into the Old Municipal Bank and it’s vaults. The point of the event is to allow people into disused or previously inaccessible locations to get an idea of what happens in the restricted areas of the city.
