Sweet typewriter of mine

I have always wanted a traditional typewriter and fell in love with this turquoise number, when it flashed up on eBay.

My lovely sister in law sent me some birthday money, so with one click and one bid I held my breath!

It arrived yesterday and I am desperate to get a new ribbon in it, so I can get tapping away!

My brother was so thoughtful and sent me this brilliant photo tutorial of learning the key locations, from a fab website Machines of Loving Grace.

I can't get that song 'Sweet Child of Mine' out of my head except I keep singing sweet typewriter of mine!
