The sweet smell of new school stationery
Noodle goes through notebooks at the speed of lightning and rarely stops to savour that feeling. What does make him happy though is hundreds of lovingly sharpened pencils. When he has a test or a big day at school I sharpen all his pencils after he has gone to bed then line them up in his pencil case. He always gets a kick out of it. It's my version of the lunchbox note (which I don't do for various reasons).
This yummy lot of pencils has just arrived by special delivery. Stationery heaven! Imagine a pencil made by a company established in 1897! And something new, a triangular eraser in a handy click-down case, by Pentel. Apparently the corners make it easy to target the erroneous area, no more rubbing out the good stuff! I will let you know what Noodle thinks of it. He'll probably just sigh and scold me for wasting money on gimmicks!
