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.

How are you getting on with your planning system?  Are you happy with what you have, forever changing (a bit like me) to keep things interesting or still looking for planner perfection?  Let me know.
