Two years

Unfortunately I’m still quite busy at work, but I am quite confident that I’ll be able to write new blog posts in the next few weeks.

Until then just two things I want to mention:

  • This blog is now two years old. I’m quite happy about this and hope that next year there’ll be many more blog posts. There are so many ideas I want to convert to blog posts… Some of them haven been in my hear for more than a year…
  • For anyone living in the UK: I noticed that Currys (at least in one of our Currys / PC World stores) started selling stationery. The items they sell are ridiculously cheap, e.g. Helix rulers for 7 pence (~ 11¢; 8c) or Stabilo GREENcolors sets, 12 FSC certified coloured pencils, for 80 pence (~ $1.26; 94c) – plus many more items.

  1. Happy birthday, Bleistift blog!
    Memm, are you going to bake a cake like you did this June?

  2. Thank you for some very informative posts, both historically and contemporary. More of it , please.

  3. Thank you all very much for your kind comments.

    Claire, I won’t be baking a cake 🙂 even though this would be a fitting occasion for a pencil shaped cake…

    Stationery Traffic, I actually made a mistake in the original post. We have this Currys / PC World Megastore (they belong together), but the stationery was actually from the Currys half, not the PC World half. I found it while browsing through the shop when my car got its service and MOT in the garage next door. I fixed the post now to mention Currys instead. We have a few more Currys store in Preston. I drive by one of them on my way to work. I will check whether they sell stationery, too.

  4. Congrats on your 2nd Anniversary! I’ve really enjoyed following your blog ever since i discovered it last year and looking forward to future posts! Happy Holidays! 🙂
