Never mind, I was lucky enough to win another draw a day ago, so I'll be trotting off to Waterstones to buy the pencils after all!
Ooh, what did you win? Hope your branch of Waterstones sells these - apparently it's only certain branches which have this new expanded stationery section. Hope you find some. Thanks for entering the draw and *really* sorry you didn't win! (When I win the Lottery - and I'm sure it must be my turn soon! - I'll send a set of Penguin pencils to every single reader of Musings ...!)
I've already seen the said pencils in my local Waterstones, so no problem there! I won Molly Keane's Good Behaviour courtesy of kind Random Distractions, and I'm very happy with that - It might even jump my 'to be read' queue!
You will *love* Good Behaviour, I'm sure, and you'll be rushing back to Waterstones to find more Molly Keane, and never mind the rest in the TBR queue!
Well done Becca! : )
Well done Becca, I'm gutted!A spot of retail therapy is called for, or maybe just a nice cup of coffee in the gardenAlison
Juliet, the Sea Glass book arrived a few days ago, and is simply splendid. Thank you.
Really glad you're pleased with it. Sorry you didn't win the pencils too!!
Well done, Becca. I hope you use them for drawing and notes and doodles as that's what they are for.
Hmmm, anonymous, I'm not so sure. These aren't any old workaday pencils, you know, these are Penguin Pencils - the box is integral to the whole concept! I fear mine will not be leaving their box for a long while, if ever!
Dear Anon - you could always buy your own set, sharpen them, chew them, strew them around the place, lend and lose them, and chuck away the box. Personally, I do not think this is what this *particular* set of pencils is 'for'!
Thanks everyone! Since I don't draw particularly well, they probably won't be taken out of the box for a while ... they are far too precious to let my six nieces and one nephew loose on them either!
Hi Becca - really glad they arrived safely. Enjoy!
