I live in a house with a loft full of old photographs. My father is a talented amateur photographer and I found a stack of pictures he took of various scenes in Mauritius many years ago. I really felt that they were too lovely not to share. My mum was Mauritian, so we have a special place in our hearts for this little island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. This month also marks ten years since she passed away, so looking back on these pictures of her homeland makes me happy and they are very true to my memories.

I’m currently basking in my own indecision around my 2018 diary and daily journal choices. Part 1 of this two-part series looked at the choices I’ve narrowed down for my diary setup, where I record my day-to-day activities, things to remember, upcoming tasks, the occasional list and any other necessary jottings that help me keep life organised. Part 2 today is looking at my daily journaling options, where I record more detail and experiences that I want to remember.

I’m currently trying to choose my diary and journal system for 2018, as they are a staple of my Christmas list. I think being a stationery lover comes with a certain amount of indecisiveness and over-analysis, especially when trying to commit to a product for a year. I’ve narrowed down a selection to share with you over two posts, alongside some highly first-world-problem thoughts about each one. This first post looks at diary choices for the year – my day-to-day solution for noting down appointments, things I need to remember and all manner of jottings. Can you help me choose?

And now, for something a little different. As you may have noticed from my occasional travel carry posts (when I am prepared enough to write about them in advance), I travel fairly regularly for work. Today I’m writing about a stack of notebooks that were given to my team by Nanjing Metro.

As much as any stationery lover enjoys their pens, pencils, inks and desk tools, the receptacle for these prized items is important too. I recently bought myself the beautiful P.A.P Fiffi Pencase Folder in Norway for days when I want a minimal everyday carry.

The London Parchment is Two Years Old. I love having this little outlet for my thoughts on the stationery tools and projects that I enjoy so much. Here’s a quick summary of my second year of stationery blogging.

I’ve been working in Leipzig since Monday, a city I have never visited before. As with any business trip, I meticulously planned my stationery everyday carry. I’m attending a summit consisting of several talks, panel sessions and technical visits, so my stationery carry is geared towards easy notetaking and brainstorming.

Spring has been a long time coming in London and in some ways I feel like we missed it! We went from grey, squally and chilly to bright, sunny and hot. Still though, I’ve been celebrating spring through four new ink choices that I’ve been bringing into rotation since the beginning of April.
