Bullet Journal, an Update

If there was ever one thing I should blog about regularly it’s Bullet Journalling.

So I got home to find the postman had left the package in our bin cupboard so I didn't need to pick it up at the depot. Then I had to WAIT while we went to pick up some take away and drinks, then get home and eat. Finally I was able to gleefully tear open the package and look at...
