      Would have liked more space for critical reflections and notes

      Hi Tracey, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate the feedback!

      Good content

      Content and layout are good.
      Printing is very faint. I’d like it darker and more solid, not sure if they’re all printed so faint as this is my first purchase but gives the appearance the printer was low on ink!

      Hi Kristen, thank you very much for your review. And thank you for sending through the photos of your diary. I can confirm this is not a printing error. If we print too dark, the lines and text can show through to the other side and compete with your handwriting. We appreciate your feedback and hope the diary supports you in your programming next year!
