For the gloomy days

I am enjoying this little Korean notebook that Bev gave me to write in. The cover is a nice heavy weight card and the pages are reassuringly opaque and feint lined. A busy little panda graces the corners of the pages. The best feature though, is the sweet cover which opens to reveal this gem ...

Everybody has gloomy days. These are miserable days when you feel small and you shouting, "Please kill me!" Maybe work is pain in the nightmare. You're under major pressure to fill someone else's shoes and everyone is the office is driving you crazy. But who knows what amazing things are in store just around the corner? Best of all there's L.O.V.E.

And to think the cover looks so innocuous! One thing is for sure - I will Happy Smile (or will that be a guffaw?) every time I jot down my thoughts.

  1. Hee hee - maybe you could have a weekly segment with a prophecy from the notebook!

  2. Even though it has been awhile since I was shouting "Please kill me" your post made me happy smile and guffaw.


  3. COOL notebook, lol. What a cheerful bit of prose! :p

  4. What was that bit about Bred Pitt and Dad's armpits? ;)

  5. methinks a 'pain in the nightmare' is to be avoided at all costs...
