As the song goes 'Regrets, I've had a few. But then again too few to mention ...'
One of my regrets after starting to read through this diary, which was with all the other diaries in the drawer that I have now emptied, is deleting my 'A Year Without ...' blog. I should have kept my old Challenge blogs for posterity.
This one, for some reason I thought so much of that I printed out almost every post after writing them ... and stuck them onto the pages of a spare desk diary.
A huge investment in ink and paper, but one that I could put through my company as a 'business expense'. Owning a company comes in handy sometimes :-)
It makes for fascinating reading.
And I might even be tempted to keep it.
Although having it all saved as a Blog would have taken up a lot less space!!
And speaking of saving space, all my old important information has now been moved from my large desk diary into my lovely new Filofax. It's so much smaller, lighter and easier to carry from house to Van when I'm on the move. The address pages from my last business-sized Filofax that had been folded and living in my new but never used address book have also been copied into the new version.
It only took me about five years to do it. Talk about procrastination 😄
The last thing to copy into my little blue book is the information from my 'banking book'. Although I do virtually all my banking online, both personal and business I do like to have a paper record of movements in and out of my account ... of which there surprisingly few these days now the mortgage is paid off and the mortgage insurance has been cancelled ... so I use a small A5 notebook to keep tabs on things. As you can see from the cover I've had this little book in use for quite a few years, at the end of each year if the accounts are all balalancd I rip out the pages and start again, so although over time it has gotten lighter it will never reduce in its actual size. Now this too will be recorded in my little blue book.
Lots of lovely simplification.
