Buckle up, it’s my holiday diary!  We took a rare winter holiday and explored parts of Yorkshire, which was delightful.  I hope you enjoy my ramblings.

Aaah.  The end of a sketchbook is always a momentous occasion for me given how slowly I fill them!  I started this one in August 2015 so I’ve not done too badly with it.  This one is, I think, entirely filled with holiday entries.  I like that this book has evolved into a pure holiday diary, as I now use other books for work-related thoughts and ideas.  Not sure what’ll happen with my next book.  I’ll be using another rebound Moleskine (see here), but with red covers this time: maybe having a more vibrant cover will lead it to catch my eye more often, reminding me to use it!

Oh, yes, and I’ve decided to move away from using a fountain pen in these.  I’m not sure if it’s the ink or the paper (or a combination of the two) but it takes forever to dry.  The photo below shows what happened on a far too regular basis, and that was after waiting a good ten minutes before closing the book.  I’ll be switching back to pigma micron pens (or similar) as they still use waterproof ink but they dry much more quickly!
