Despite having various computers from the age of 5, the way that I remember how I learnt to type was on a giant old rusty typewriter of my mums. Before we got our first Windows PC (when I was 13), I had an electric typewriter which I used to write up the very important stories that I wrote about hamsters (probably – we were obsessed when we were in primary school about the secret life of hamsters!)

It seems a little cliche now, but I’d love to have a typewriter on display in my office – even better if it actually worked.


  1. I had quite a large collection of typewriters at one stage. When I moved to London I had to get rid of the majority because of space, but I kept a gorgeous baby blue petite delux which is still functioning and has its genuine 60s carry case. I love it and it will be on display as soon as I have my own office. X

  2. I had a typewriter too, I used to write about walking down the lane at the bottom of Butterbache Road…bizzare…although not as bizzare as writing about hamsters, and we both know we are guilty of that!
