Every year I get excited at the prospect of buying my diary for the coming year. This year I have a black week per view Moleskin and a giant desk diary for work but next year I have decided to go for a red Moleskin – week per view with notes. I agonised for ages, flicking through the different sizes and layouts, trying them on for size the way Paris Hilton poses with her clutches. But one this is certain – you can’t go wrong with a Moleskin.
I put the below pic of my fire engine red diary on Twitter, a tweet responded to by those who share my stationary fetish. But it is not just any stationary that gets me trying on the same thing in more than one colour, in particular it is the diary, the symbolic status of organisation and planning. That, and you have to look at it every day for a whole year!
