About the book

If there's one word to describe Aisling, it's 'organised', and with this little book her creators Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen are providing Aislings everywhere with the perfect tool to stay on top of things. Each month kicks off with an Aisling-tastic inspirational quote, with each week clearly laid out so you can tell at a glance how many baby showers you have or when your car tax is due. There's also a space to out write the month's attainable goal. Do you want to take up Zumba? Or learn 'Maniac 2000' on the tin whistle? Get out your Good Pen and write it down. It's all about being intentional. And then once you achieve your goals you get to tick them off, which is really the only reason to make a list in the first place. Once you get into the habit of using it, you won't be able to imagine your life without it, sort of like how ludicrous the world would be without smartphones or Dolmio Stir In! It's the essential diary for every Aisling - plan your weeks, prioritise goals and never forget another birthday!
