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.

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.

Go on - have a go and post your score in the comments section.  I think I'd have been better off with questions about fish and chips, drinking tea and pop groups of the 80s.
