The new office diaries have arrived...

...and they are as boring as ever **rollseyes**

Last week I picked up my new office diary and just like that urban legend about Ford Motors...they come in any colour you want - as long as it is black!

It wasn't always this way. We used to have a massive choice...black...or blue, but for some reason the 'powers-that-be' decided a couple of years ago that we only needed black. Now I can hear you saying "what's the problem with that?" - a diary is a diary is a diary after all.

Well yes, a diary will do its job whatever colour it is but when everyone has identical looking items it is easy to misplace...just because they all look the same.

I was sitting at my craft desk updating my 2013 diary...
...travelling between three different offices every week I need to keep my diary up to date and readily to hand...
...'2013' has been well used and is starting to look a little battered.

For those of you who visit the lovely Julia on her blog the Stamping Ground, you will have noticed a roll of moustache parcel tape. I also have a roll of this tape and a couple of weeks ago Suzie (Weasel) and I 'pimped' some carrier-bags and deeli-boppers so that we conformed to the dress code for the Sugar & Spice 10th birthday celebration...
 ...I just happened to have a couple of deeli-boppers hanging about...
 ...as you do (???)

Well all that 'pimping' didn't use much of the tape so I dug it out and this is what happened to diary 2014...
...a few rows of moustache tape and a bit of washi tape to finish off (the diary isn't tall enough for five rows of moustaches) and then the addition of some silver peel-offs - and there you have it...my personalised diary for the coming work year................................................
