I'm working today; got quite a lot on at work at the moment, so an extra day will help keep on top of things.

Kate nipped into town earlier; as well as getting a bolt to mend one of our armchairs, she picked up a cheapo fountain pen for me and some railway points for Beth.

I usually write with a fountain pen at home; I'm a long-tern Parker fan, and have a Parker Sonnet that I'm very happy with. I use bottle ink; when I ordered some new ink at Christmas from Diamine they also sent a mixed pack of coloured ink cartridges. Unfortunately they were the little 'euro-standard' cartridges, which won't work in any of the Parker or Sheaffer pens I have. So Kate went to Innes' on South Street today, and bought me the cheapest (about £10!) fountain pen that would take the little cartridges; a very plastic Staedtler. Now I'm taking notes in vibrantly orange ink. Joy.

Beth and Kate had fun with Beth's wooden railway this morning. With lots of straight and curved sections, but few points, track layout options were constrained. So Kate got some more two-way and three-way points. Beth is delighted.

Now back to the Apache config...
