I've had vertical diaries arrive with my A5's before, but have always used the horizontal ones because the rings just get in the way on Wednesdays.
I was in my room when I spied one of the 2013 vertical ones looking a bit forlorn and thought I'd take a closer look. Do you know what? The layout is great!!! But could it work for me?
I immediately transferred everything from my Lyndhurst into the Holborn, swapped the diary pages out, and gave it a go. I started out by writing some of my previous weeks stuff into January pages that I would never need.
But then it came up - that dreaded Wednesday reminder where pretty much the only way I could write it in would be to take the page out, and there is just no point in having it if you have to do that.
Of course my preferred option would be to stop working on Wednesdays, but as that isn't an option for me I had to admit defeat and put everything back how it was.
It's a shame - so much potential.
