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. This year (2022) I used the "Mega" version which comes with almost three times as m

I'm Loving... Threesome

Never did I think I would have a blog post with the title "Threesome" in it and, if I'm being totally honest, it's probably not what your Google search or inquisitive mind is looking for here.  Sorry and all that.

A short while back I was flicking through the billions and trillions of Sky channels and found a British comedy called Threesome (I wasn't looking for Sexcetera, honest).  I've managed to watch all of series 1 from the beginning and we're now into series 2.

The premise of the show is that Alice is turning 30 and feeling old so her boyfriend (Mitch) and their gay best-mate-cum-flatmate (Ritchie) decide to give her a drink and drug-fueled present that makes her not feel old - a threesome.  A few weeks after the party, Alice finds out she's pregnant at almost the same time Mitch finds out he is infertile... 

There were hilarious guest spots from Pauline "Mrs Doyle" McLynn and Adam Garcia (swoon...) and it's probably the only time that I'll admit to a bit of a girl crush on the female lead.  Highlights of the first series were the lads going out and getting smashed when they were on a sober-promise to Alice, a space hopper fancy dress costume for Alice when she was almost at her due date and the three Nanas-to-be trying to make out the arrangement is normal and cool when they just really don't know how to handle it all.

I promise you, it's way more funny than I'm making it out to be.

Anyway - the new series has started on Comedy Central (look out for a repeat of episode one and catch up quick) and it's all about trying to be stay cool but bring up baby and if anyone wants to buy me series 1 and 2 as a gift then you only need to ask for my address *wink*
