I realise that I’m craving a road trip. At the very least a change of scene but preferably some wide open spaces and, since you ask, for preference I’d like to be driving one of these.
Favourite car ever bar none.
Powder blue please, that’s OK right?
So, as discussed, I’m having a little love in moment with my iPad. Yes, hello shiny new toy. But what’s with the cases man? God, it’s enough to make you write man in the middle of a sentence.
Really, they’re all dead geeky and tech or otherwise they cost, frankly, the same as the thing itself which is just silliness. Also, am I the only person around here who doesn’t particularly want to advertise the £600 toy I have stashed in my bag? Honestly?
So..what to do.
Well, to be really honest with you I’m feeling a little smug with my answer here, are you ready? A little trawling around on some vintage sites lead me to the perfect answer, a blend of old school and brave new world. A space for my iPad, stylus, some business cards and, oh yes, a calendar from 1976.
Now you really should never leave home without one of those.
I have to fess up here and admit I have a real weakness for stationary. Proper, old school paper and pens are just fab to me, much as I love tech and screens and cameras and (especially) my new iPad. Oh yes.
So can you imagine how excited I was when a friend of mine, who happens to be an amazing calligrapher, gave me this little gift this morning?
