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.

Cybermummy 2011 - the 50 day countdown

Cybermummy '11 - the UK's premier blogging conference devoted to parent bloggers - is within touching distance.  Just 50 days to go!  The main event is on 25th June 2011.

I am off down to the Big Smoke with only Manda as my chaperone (the blind leading the blind springs to mind here). I plan to do plenty of schmoozing, attend a few workshops and generally meet up with many fantastic bloggers, new and old, some whom I am proud to call my friends, even though we have never met.


Who is making all this possible? Well, you may have noticed in my sidebar a little notification saying that "Your Baby Can Read" is my sponsor.  YBCR is very kindly covering all my expenses for the conference.

I was lucky enough to review their product last year for the Rainbow Awards team and it proved a massive hit especially as the learning was incorporated into play time.  See the bottom of this post for more information about Your Baby Can Read.


Oh! What's that! Me?  Speaking at Cybermummy?  Well, you lucky, lucky people.  Yes, it's true!  I have been chosen to be part of the Crowdsourced Keynote team and I will be reading out a specially selected blog post from last year to help round up Cybermummy '11.  You can hear me speak between 5pm and 6pm and I will be counting heads to make sure you're all there!

Are you going to Cybermummy '11?  
Leave me a comment and let me know!  
I can't wait!

Your Baby Can Read!
