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.

  • You can follow Geoff on his @GeoffTheDog1 Twitter account
  • The very famous Fridge of a Bad Parent blog post

Do you fancy showing me round your kitchen?  Just take a quick video let me know when you're done so I can come and have a nosy.
