My Diary For 2023

Every year I write a blog post about which diary system or set up I am going to use for the following twelve months. In recent years, I have moved away from a Filofax (I trialled something earlier this year - more of that in a minute) and fallen in love with the Hobonichi printed diaries. For the last two years I have used a Hobonichi Weeks as my personal planner and I won't be deviating from that this year. I have tried a Hobonichi Techo A6 a couple of times but have never managed to feel comfortable with it size-wise.  I have always lusted after the Hobonichi Cousin A5 as a main work planner so, this year, I have bitten the bullet at launch time and invested in my very first one. Hobonichi Weeks The Hobonichi Weeks is a slim diary with a yearly, monthly and weekly layout. The main section is a "week to view with notes" and there are an additional 70 note pages at the back.

I'll bet all of Whitney Houston's nerves disappeared whilst listening backstage... at least she's going to sound and look good after that!!


Bloody Hell!!! Whitney was almost as bad AND she looks smashed off her face... actually, she IS smashed off her face, can hardly open her eyes, is having trouble stringing two words together, can't really comprehend any questions that are put to her about the contestants from the night before (probably because she was smacked off her tits in her hotel and not watching the show) and her dress is falling off too :-o

Maybe Whitney wants to listen to her own words... "practise, practise, practise" not *snort*snort*snort*

Who's on next week? Pete Docherty?
