The Perpetual Disappointments Diary

So how was 2014 for you? Did it open with a swell of hope, swerve into a ditch of normality before capitulating into a forgettable montage of Fridays, broken up by the occasional holiday? Sounds like we've found the perfect diary for your 2015.

From the dry minds of Sue Asbury and Nick Asbury (they do cracking mugs), the Perpetual Disappointments Diary does away with the usual glut of false optimism and vapid projections of grandeur that seem to strike around January. Not specific to the calendar year of 2015, monthly dates are marked without days of the week - a sheet of 'Monday' stickers allow you to mark off the seven day cycles of horror. 

Disappointments Diary

The miscellany section includes notable deaths, useful phrases ("A table for one, please") and spaces for failed creative projects. In short, it's gloriously bleak. 

Available from 13 November for £13, it's certainly got more character than the average Moleskin. One for that friend with a concerning sense of humour.
