Continuing along with my current theme of I'm ready for this year to be over, I bought a nice calendar for next year to put on the wall. Normally I go to the shopping centre and choose a pretty one from one of the numerous stands in the middle of the malls, usually one with photos of trees or waterfalls. I never write on them though and often forget to change the month until it's already a week (or more) into it. I really just use it to look at the date when I'm on my mobile planning something and can't use my iphone calendar.
So I thought this year I might go a pretty design on page style calendar. I did have a look at the teatowel calendar designs on spoonflower but none grabbed me enough to buy one so then I turned to etsy. And ended up with this one from once upon a paper.
Next on the list is a diary. I'm quite particular in what I want from a diary and I haven't found one that perfectly suits me yet. Each year I try a different type. This year I'm going to try this one from Delfonics. I've just ordered it from Notemaker.
It's a weekly one (which I like because it's not too heavy like daily ones) with the week on one side and a lined page on the other for notes, similar to the moleskine style I think. This one though has monthly views at the front of the diary which I don't think the moleskine ones do (I was originally looking at them). I googled what the german writing means and it (apparently) says A story, a life. And the small writing under that says a quote which means "For the lucky, the clock does not strike." which is apparently similar to our quote of "Time flies when you're having fun."
Do you have a diary that you like to get the same format of each year? Or are you still hunting for that elusive perfect one like me?
