One of the many pleasurable things about a new job is the need for suitable stationery: a notebook for your ‘how to’ lists perhaps or in my case a new desk diary.
It is quite a few years since I have needed a desk diary for work. I know we have Outlook and online diaries nowadays. They are incredibly useful but nothing quite beats a paper diary: a book that gives you a tactile awareness of the flow of the year.
I love A4 one-page-a-day diaries. But its October and I didn’t want to waste paper! I went academic year. While there are a couple of unused months in my new academic diary I am sure those pages will soon be used for notes.
To make my new diary perfect a couple of additions were needed.
I am sure my bookbinding friends are cringing at my clunky addition of two slim ribbons running from the spine. Sorry JG and B. However I love having markers for today’s date and the next key date.
Well folks those glorious blank pages beckon. Diary entry coming up.
