#HappyWriting with Pilot Pens

Do you ever feel like technology is over taking everything. Like we are becoming so dependent on it that if it was all taken away we would be at a loss?

I know that I rely heavily on my phone for everyday life, pictures, lists, even charting my monthlies. And recently it all went wrong as I had to restore my phone…and I hadn’t backed it up regularly so I ended up losing a lot of information, including notes and dates of important things.

Maybe it’s time we went back to good old fashioned writing. The only time I actually use a pen these days is to write on an envelope.

Pilot Pens have started a #HappyWriting campaign and as part of the campaign I received some lovely stationary to get me started and to record some magic moments with Bee.

Bee is finding her voice and words these days so the cute little notebook is ideal to record what she says and does and put it in her memory box for her.

Her current favourite sentence is ‘What are you dooooooooooing?’

She clearly has picked that up from me as I am forever saying that to her in exasperation as she trashes the living room, or decides to do some acrobatics by climbing on the sofa and the banister, or trying to stamp on the cat’s tail….the list is endless!

She also says ‘Bye’ and ‘See you’.

She says ‘Owwww’ when I comb her hair. (Even if the hairbrush hasn’t actually touched her hair!)

She says ‘She hit it me’ if her sister even touches her!

The rabbit is currently called ‘Abbit’

And of course the most favourite single word is ‘No!’ Although she does know ‘Yeah’.

I love hearing her vocabulary expand and I look forward to recording all these precious moments in our little notebook. Why not join in with #happywriting and rediscover the joy of actually sitting down and writing things. I had actually forgotten how relaxing it can be.


Disclaimer: I received some pens and a notebook as part of the #happywriting campaign. But all thoughts and opinions are my own….and I’m not sharing the pens with the kids! They are mine! 😉

    It has taken over sister. I love writing letters. Some sisters and I write letters to each other and it is all so much more special. I honestly think people have forgotten how to communicate without the help of a laptop or the like!

    I do like a good pilot pen – my fiance has lots in his office pots and i am always taking them!

    I started a good old fashioned pen to paper journal for my daughter when i was a few months pregnant.
    Which reminds me – i need to update!

    I love writing and wish I did more of it. I also really love stationery, particularly lovely notebooks!

    I think so much better when I write. I’ve got lots of notebooks floating around. If only my blog ideas could float of the pages and into the laptop!

    I only tend to use stationery at work, but it can work wonders for my creativity. I was on a train recently and managed to write 2 blog posts in a couple of hours. I’m normally sat at my computer with a blank screen in front of me, agonising for hours over what my title should be!

    Totally agree with you. I am practically attached to my tablet but every year on one of the 3G’s birthdays I handwrite a little letter in a cute notebook. Long live the pen!

    I love having a notebook and pen – even though I use a computer and other tech stuff everyday – there is something substantial about using a pen and notebook.

    My handwriting is shocking since I started blogging, I seem to type everything and not write things. I bought myself a rather lovely writing stationary set last week to help motivate me to write more – I didn’t even think of pens – so thanks!

    Pens, notepads, computers, tablets, phones, laptops..if I can write something down whether physically or by typing, I love it! Nothing beats a new notepad and pen though and I love Pilot pens

    I love stationary – I used to write a lot but my hands won’t cope with it any more I miss it and the cute stationary! lol

    My mother in law bought me a lovely notebook and pen back from her holiday and I have to admit, it felt like a novelty after using my phone and laptop for everything! I’ve done my weekly meal plan using pen and paper today. The kids looked at me funny when they saw me writing!

    I love Pilot pens. Sometimes people think that they are overpriced but I tend to disagree, they are well worth it.

    I love pens and notebooks. I draft all my blog posts in a notebook!

    I am a pen and notebook girl and mama. I do write a lot on paper.
    I like the freedom it gives me. And you’re right, it’s relaxing too.
    Love to you all Foz. xx

    I love taking pen to paper every now and again I find it quite therapeutic, I have a good collection of cool pencils and different notepads scattered around. x
