Just watched a drama about Samuel Pepys whilst making brandy chocolate truffles for Christmas – not the best of dramas – could have done with a bit more diarising and a little less debauchery I thought – but quite good fun all the same.

It also made me think how this *new* thing that is *blogging* has given the world a renewed quantity of diaries and journals. I can remember when it was just thirteen year old girls who would write *diaries* – now everyone seems to be doing it. Hrm… I wonder what the actual figures are? I wonder if this post is making sense?
