BEST LAID PLANS

A few weeks into 2013 I still hadn’t picked myself up a diary/planner and man was it really showing. I tend to use the calendar app on my iphone for lots of things but I sometimes want to jot things down and there’s something nice about having it physically there all in one place. It’s also really awkward in a meeting when  you pull out your phone and start typing, you know that you’re making notes and jotting down dates and times but to your companion it looks like you’re bored and trying to unlock that extra achievement on Hay Day, am I right?

I took to twitter for advice, natch, and you all pointed me in the direction of The Magic Notebook who stock beautiful stationary and planners including the pretty Alice ones. I chose my diary, added it to my basket and got distracted before I checked out. Don’t pretend that hasn’t happened to you! As I was going to write something down later I kicked myself  but when my other half got home from work I was so glad because he came home brandishing this beauty – for free! Trust me when I say I could write a book (lol) on the benefits of having a boyfriend that works for a bookseller, and this time he came up trumps. This diary is based on the book of the same name by Ines de la Fressange which I need to check out.  I love the size, the colour, and the cute little tips/jokes and illustrations. It also has plenty of room for me to jot down what I need to do for the day as well as my notes.
