Looks like my beloved Lamy pen has gone …. last used in Air Coffee Castle Hill but no where to be found… though I always live in hope that it might turn up somewhere.

I am not totally Lamy-pen less as I have my gold nib black and sliver Joy which is a little heavier and a little too expensive to lose (the nib is worth a lot more than the pen). I much prefer the older model(black and red) to use and my hand has a special bond with it… I put that pen in my hand and the creative juices just start pumping… not to mention the travels that we have had together.

I am not easily able to replace the black and red Joy as it is no longer available here in Australia… so might try to source it overseas…

I have been having a bad run lately….. a few weeks ago I lost the necklace I wore nearly every day for years (it has definitely gone- fell out of my pocket one morning) and my tom tom and sunglasses disappeared 2 weeks ago only to re-emerge on the weekend in strange locations. But these are only ‘things’ and ultimately not that important….just a touch frustrating that I seem to be so careless/scatter brained at the moment!

    Liz, Go here...


    I just received my new Joy pen yesterday. It is wonderful!

    I've used Jetpens too and can attest to great customer service from them.
    Sorry you lost your pen, if you've only misplaced it, then as soon as you order a new one, and they have shipped it... then the lost pen will turn up... at least that's what happens when I replace lost items LOL

    Oh no ! I feel your pain ! I can imagine the sense of loss that you feel as your old familiar comfortable pen is now longer at your reach.
    Thank goodness for a back up and I am sure that it was be able to be replaced and maybe even the original one may tuen up in an unexpected place. Of course, you can't look for it because you don't know where those unexpected places are !

    I've also had wonderful luck with Goulet pens. Here's the link so you can check out the best shipping. I think that's going to be the expensive part.
