For passing your 11+?
She obviously wanted you to write more and more in your studies!

I love that fountain pen! I love everything about it. We had to use one when I was in school. No ballpoints allowed! I love the image!

I love it,Chris. This was my father's Parker, which my mother gave me after he died. I've used it in a previous Thursday challenge
