It is the dawning…

Here is another stationery item I have picked up recently. I found it on one of my regular meanders around the stationery aisle of my local TK Maxx. It is labelled as being manufactured in China for Robert Frederick of Bath, with a recommended retail price of £12.95 reduced to £4.99. The journal has a… Continue reading It is the dawning…

Red shoe days

My whole wardrobe is pointless because I have no red shoes. (Me) I'm sure we all have red shoe days, even though each person may call them by a different name. The red shoe day comes when you've had a spell of bad luck, when it seems like everything that can go wrong is going… Continue reading Red shoe days

An unexpected find

I picked up this item in my local branch of Morrisons' supermarket this week for the princely sum of £3.00. It isn't pretending to be a high quality product, but I found it irresisible because of the 9-ring mechanist which looked surprisingly similar to a Filofax Deskfax configuration. Filofax have made many different sizes of… Continue reading An unexpected find

The gentle art of time travel

2019 - 2009 - 1972 You will recall the last time I spoke of my current knitting project it was the not-pink jumper: a lovely slouchy knit in plain stocking-stitch to ease me back into the knitting habit after my brief hiatus. I think we all know that was going to bore me after ten… Continue reading The gentle art of time travel

Ready, set….

Looks like I still haven't done with ringing the changes, because for 2020 I am downsizing my planning into these two slim A6 books. I have chosen A6 because it's the easiest to carry on a daily basis, but I'll admit to a touch of trepidation over whether it will work out after a couple… Continue reading Ready, set….
