I arrived home today to an exciting parcel from Amazon, after deciding to treat myself last week to something from my ever-growing Amazon wishlist (good work, Past Me! It's like a present from the past. Woah.). I can't remember the (made-up) reason I had for "treating" myself now. It was probably because it was Thursday. Or maybe I'd done the washing up. Something like that.
Anyways, a few months ago I'd added this genius little book to my wishlist after discovering it on Hannah's drool-worthy blog Corner Cottage Bakery. Which you should totally check out by the way because:
1. It is excellent
2. As I met Hannah in real life and whatnot at the DotComGiftShop Bloggers event in July I can confirm she is equally awesome in reality
3. She really does live in a cottage on a corner.

It's not your average diary to fill with teen angst and musings about your not-so-secret crush on Joe Manganiello (erm, hello!?! that's what blogging is for...) but instead has one question for every day of the year and enough space to write a response to each question for five whole years(!) So, in *counts on fingers* August 2018 I'll be able to flick back through five years' worth of answers to a smorgasbord of weird and wonderful questions and see how I've changed (or not. As if I'm ever going to stop loving Lego!).
|1,825 answers(!) Which means, by the time I finish, I'll basically have written a novel!!|
I think it's an absolutely genius idea for capturing feelings and innermost thoughts, and monitoring how someone's opinions change over the next half decade. It's basically science. And I'm really looking forward to finding out what each day's question is going to be.
|I did say the questions were weird and wonderful...|
In a rather happy co-incidence, today's question is "Did you complete your To Do list for today?" and, as I've just finished work to have a nice long weekend at home, I'm very glad to be able to write "Hells yes I did" as the first entry in the diary that's will become my constant bedside companion over the next five years.
|Very much looking forward to reading back this one...|
It'll probably say "A bee", "My feet", "Some Toast"...
It's quite weird to think that when I finish this I'm going to be 30. I wonder how different my life is going to be then?!
|I have a feeling this answer is going to be the same every year...|
P.S. I love your dress! Where's it from?!
