Typewriter medicine

Off sick from school? Bored of daytime TV? No homework? No problem! Just come on over to Wallingford Typewriter Exchange and we'll sort you out with a loaner.

After trying quite a few different machines, Evie fell upon the Olympia SF with gusto (kid's got great taste) and ended up taking it home. Maybe it was the way I described it as a bit more lady-like than the SM2 she was wrestling with.

I hear she's on her second novel now (mostly in red, as it happens), and hopefully well enough to be back at school.

Now all I need to do is persuade her to bring it back... you see, it isn't my typewriter.

What happens next?


  1. Lucky girl! I was never more thankful to have my typewriters as a distraction than when I was stuck home for a week with chicken pox a couple of summers ago.

    It's not your typewriter?...

    1. It was a Valentine's gift to my partner. I'm hoping the Adler Tippa will do in permanent exchange.

  2. Very good deed you did there. Now you've got to find one she can keep!
