Today I Went to Stationery Heaven

....otherwise known as Officworks. I have a secret, I'm quite addicted to stationery. I'm worse in a stationery store that has a sale than any clothes store. I have a suspicion that this addiction is related to my being brought up around the printing business. My parents were founding members of Challenge newspaper and there was always scrap paper, old pens, the old fashioned wax machine and the darkroom to play in. Actually, we (my brother and I) weren't really playing but learning but I realise that now.

Anyway, there seems to be a very big stock clearance at officeworks at the moment and so my bargain instincts kicked in and I bought lots and lots of things for 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c and $1. Great fun. Now I just have to use it all (not really as much of it was for the new office!).
