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.

With a smooth touchscreen and a cute cover
And have a long battery life, a long battery life.

Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooooo
Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooooo
Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooooo
Aaahh  Aaahh

And sharing integration for my Twitter friends to see

I need a Kindle.  I'm holding out for Kindle until Christmas Eve
It's gotta be sleek and it's gotta be light
And it's gotta have 3G
I need a Kindle.  I'm holding out for a Kindle until Christmas Eve
With a smooth touchscreen and a cute cover
And have a long battery life, a long battery life.

I NEED A KINDLE!

(see below for further details)

I have set a challenge over on my Facebook page to anyone who can record themselves singing my version of "I Need A Kindle".  Can we make it the Christmas #1?

Using Audioboo or YouTube, record yourself singing the song (with or without rehearsal, interruptions from husbands, kids or pets) and post the link in the comments of my Facebook note.

The #ineedakindlesingalong challenge is live!
