One hundred not out!

Ready  as ever
Taking guard

I always dreamt of getting my first century. I can picture it now… the hush of the stadium as the bowler starts his run up…  the whoosh of the bat as it sings through the air… the crack of leather and cork being forcefully struck by willow… the dull thud as the cricket ball lands outside the boundary rope for a six… the resultant shout of acclamation from the thousands watching as I kiss the England cricket badge emblazoned on my protective helmet and calmly lift  both it and my bat in an understatedly English manner to salute the now exultant adoring crowds…. Bliss!

Alas it was not to be. So this will have to suffice for this frustrated cricket star… I was reminded yesterday that I had promised that every century or so I would do a small giveaway on this blog, not a hundred runs for England nor a hundred years you’ll be glad to hear but every hundred followers on @FoolWithaPen  on Twitter. So having reached the gargantuan milestone of my first hundred or so followers its time for a giveaway!

Nib Creaper

But what to giveaway? Well It had to be a pen, and to be honest something that wasn’t going to break the bank (No sponsors helping me with this site at present sadly) but also something a little out of the ordinary. Something that would please the fountain pen user if for no other reason than they got it for free. So here it is…. presenting the Noodlers Nib Creaper in Lapis Inferno. This reasonably priced piston fill pen was just what I was looking for…

How to enter: This is quite simple just make sure you follow @FoolWithaPen  on  twitter and leave  a short comment saying hello on this blog post and I will have one of my minions pick a winner out at random! I will pick a winner on Friday at 9.00am GMT, so keep watching the twitter feed.

  1. I had no idea you were on twitter. I would have followed you whether or not you were giving away a pen 🙂 I look forward to your tweets. My username is @freemind62. I too hope one day to reach 100 followers. I’m sure most of my followers are bots.

    1. Hi! Thanks for the comment and yes (unlike some I could mention 😉 ) this small giveaway is open worldwide 🙂

  2. Congratulations! I know all about paying for my own giveaways but it’s worth it in the end. Crossing my fingers, this is one Noodler’s I haven’t tried even though I am a big fan of the Konrad and Ahab.

  3. Congratulations on the century! From a long time tea lady and supporter of my dad and brothers’ efforts to get to the magic number.

  4. I bumped you up to 126. Looks like you will be hitting 200 soon! I’ve been thinking to add some flex to my collection. I have several ink samples waiting for their chance to show off.

    1. Looks like I might be doing another giveaway sooner than I thought, thanks for the follow and the comment. Good luck 🙂

    1. Welcome Luke, I understand, if you check out the pen addict blog, one of the hosts is a lefty and has some good tips at times
      Kind Regards
