I got a “reminder” about our next flat inspection – due in February. Went to write it in my diary only to realise it is that time of year again and my diary runs out in a few weeks. Which means I’ve got to start agonising over what choice to make for my 2010 diary. Even though I know already I will have several. (And I also know that I will receive at least 2 diaries and 3 calendars as Christmas gifts).
Some friends might say it is way too early to be considering such an item but it pays to be prepared. Usually I have a free writing journal and then a small pocket diary to scribble down appointments and a bigger diary for to-dos. Here I am debating what pocket/purse diary to get.
I am currently using a moleskine diary as my main “cart it around everywhere” diary.
In 2004 – 2006 I used small blue pocket (page a day) diaries priced at 70p from Bargain Books. They were great and simple, perfect for when I was a student, but obviously looking for something a little bit more grown up now.
In 2007 – 2008 I had the Quo Vadis Textagenda diary which I loved (again another student planner), but then after I purchased this one I never saw one of these in the shops again. But having recently read an excellent review at Miscellany and Cacophony I’ve been wanted to get my hands on one of these again.
2008 – 2009 I had a black simple diary purchased at Wilkinson’s until I scrapped it in favour of the above mentioned Moleskine in January of this year.
So having done the basic history I shall continue to update you with tempting finds until I make a decision about which to purchase.
