      LOVE this diary

      Absolutely love this diary, it helps me keep track of this busy and hectic family scheduling.
      I agree with an earlier review and there is a bit too much other bits at the front, eg the Month view diary, there is already a at a glance look at your months with the "Our Plans", I really don't need the month view then as well as the week views.
      In the information section it would be good to have medication information listed under the children's information. It has allergies and blood group - medications would be a really good addition.

      First time purchase

      Love it. Brilliant for work, family and my own bits

      Possible change???

      Hello, I absolutely love your diaries. I have been buying them for years. I have a suggestion though... Is it possible at all to limit the amount of pages at the the start of the diary. I always cut out a load of pages from the beginning as I feel it is a bit of an overload and I don't have any need for them, it makes the diary less bulky and heavy. They might be useful to some people, notable dates and bits like that but there's loads of pages at the start with just repetitive diary stuff. Just a suggestion. I'll still be buying them and cutting the pages out I don't need or use. Thanks

      Great combined planner & organiser

      As well as being self employed, I am starting my 2nd year at university and and have 3 children. It's so hard to organise and plan everything and I end up getting overwhelmed with it all. I love grids, dedicated lists and itineraries, so I have something to keep check on and tick off when done. I like the week to view pages which also has 5 columns along with month to view pages, notes sections, plans sections...I am hoping that the majority of pages will be used and give me more time to actually DO rather than being overwhelmed and procrastinate. I like the fact that it gives you a little top tips and 'how to use guide' at the beginning too . I got the peacock blue version and love the colour and texture.

      Perfect way to stay organised

      This is my fifth year of using the academic year planner, with 5 columns there is room for our busy family commitments as well as notes, tea plans and reminders. The year planner help plan ahead to coordinate everyone's holiday activities. It sits proudly in the kitchen as the family's go to point of information. definitely recommend to everyone.
