It's autumn - time for a cosy new setup... and a freebie!

How often should you change your planner?

I'm not sure what the best word to describe myself at the moment is, but I'm thinking something along the lines of stale... dull... unmotivated... tired? Tired's not quite right - there's lots in the works and some exciting changes ahead, but I just need a boost, and my regular cup of coffee's just not going to cut it.
