Stationery but not stationary!

Not a bad descriptor for our stunning choice of On-The-Go Stationery Kits - just one example of so many of the terrific accessories we offer. Yes, we know, it's a mobile phone and online world today, allowing youngsters (when you decide they are old enough) to keep in constant contact with friends.

But that doesn't mean the joy of the written word has been left behind. It's fun to watch a young one really concentrate and be creative as they put together a message to a friend, a thank you for a kind act or a joyful note to beloved grandparents.

The things they say in writing!

Of course, kids are unique communicators, often being more direct than adults. There are some great examples of this. A boy at a summer camp in the US had to comply with the rule to write home at the end of the first week. His one-line letter to his mother simply said: 'I was forced to write this to eat'.

Some aren't overly tactful, and express love in interesting ways, such as: 'If I had a different mum, I would punch her in the face and go find you'. Then there was a note that congratulated 'the second-best teacher ever' and what might be called a grudging apology: 'I am sorry because mom says I am. I did not think I was sorry but I guess I am'.

Then there was the problem of scale, expressed superbly: 'I love you with all my butt. I would say heart but my butt's bigger'. So, have your kids written any memorable - for the right or wrong reasons - messages?
