Revisiting my journal

Aquarius journal front It was way back in January when I bought this journal and did my initial preview of it, in the "before time" as we might choose to think of it from the viewpoint of our pandemic present-day. Anyway, I've been using it for several weeks now and I think it's time to… Continue reading Revisiting my journal

A contender

Okay, so here's a contender for my 2021 planner setup. I wrote a way back in June about this A5 Filofax Original binder and how I had bought it just to have on hand should I ever decide I want to go back to a ring-bound system. Between then and now it has sat on… Continue reading A contender

Welcome to the 300th post on my blog, which should by rights be a widescreen epic, but just how epic can a little old lady whittering on about knitting and stationery be?

All a-dither

I want to apologise, to begin with, for my absence from the blog this week.

This journal was… Continue reading Au revoir, lovely journal

Planning Jan-Jun 2020

It being slap-bang in the middle of the year, this seems like a good time to reflect on what I am enjoying right now about my planner setup, not to mention what has changed or not changed since the beginning of the year.

Last Chance Saloon – Phase 3-ish

Now I'm nearing the end of my desk improvement project, also known as "Last Chance Saloon", I'm taking a look back to remind myself where I've come from. I don't really have any good photos of the my desk as it was before I started recording my changes, but this is how things stood at… Continue reading Last Chance Saloon – Phase 3-ish
