Some topics covered this week:

  • I mentioned a very special package last week, and that was my A5 Finsbury Filofax in Raspberry. I wrote a blog post about it here. I’m not including it on my list above because it’s not a notebook. Splitting hairs? Maybe. 🙂
  • I made a To-Do list about things I have to do for my blog (like a Leuchtturm ink test, suggested in a comment), things I have to do in my journals (like add my new pens and ink to my Ink Journal) and some things I want to do for Christmas presents (no more description than that!)
  • I booked our flights and car for a little holiday my husband and I are talking in a couple of weeks. Now just to choose the hotel…..! Exciting.
  • I have decided to quit my little dragon breeding game. It was beginning to take up a lot of time and I found I had less time for reading and writing, which of course only made me sad. So the game is gone. But that’s ok – more time for the important stuff!

Until next time, happy writing!
