It’s September. Why don’t they have my diary yet??
I cruise past. This shopping centre is close to home but slightly awkward to get to. The last three diaries are all variations of the Tree of Life on an A5 diary.
They’re beautiful and they match.
I visited the shopping centre again. It’s been a week. ALDI sucks some money out of me and a Muffin Break has been built. The News Agents has crappy kids stuff. No diary.
I visit Officeworks. It’s full of diaries and planners for next year. I lurk amongst the yearly planners daydreaming of enough space on the wall. People give me disinterested glances as I sneak over to the printing section where I see a queue of people. I leave the USB key in my pocket and think ‘next time I’ll order online and pick up my print out!‘ and then leave, my business’ money safe for another day
I’m still itching for the next Tree of Life to make its way into my life.
