Riddle 3

Sorry I'm late. The Dillions who are a missionary family have been staying in our house with 5 kids and a screaming baby, this is the recipe for chaos.
Also, I guess the last riddle was a little too easy. So here is a slightly harder one.

I am taken from a mine, and shut up in a wooden case, from which I am never released and yet I am used by almost everybody. What am I?

  1. I had to think about this one a while, but I have got it! Good one Jess. Again I shall not write the answer here though because that would give it away for others :D let them have a go at hurting their heads!

    1. Hmm, tell me the answer in a weeks time if you so desire, or you can leave it to give the rest a hard time!

    1. Isn't the point of a riddle to make you think? Although, that's 'always a dangerous past time!'

    2. Oh wait! I've got it! Is it a pencil?!

    3. Well, that didn't take as long as I had hoped. Yes, it is.
