So…I’ve written alot of pages this week, mostly about my trip to Phoenix, which will remain private. But I also wrote in my health journal, as I’m trying some new medication and have gone for more tests. The saga continues. 🙂

And with this post I neatly tie up journalling for 2014.

  • 685 pages written this year – not too bad
  • 55 items purchased – more than I thought. I think I will keep the spirit of this going, although I probably won’t list everything as I think that must be boring for the reader after a couple of weeks.
  • And almost all of the J. Herbin ink in my possession – ha ha! (evil laughter)

I hope all of you have a wonderful and safe New Year’s celebration, and an amazing 2015!
