Just by having such a great calendar hanging in my kitchen it brings a big smile to my face DAILY. Last year i had to endure a joke present of a cliff richard calendar, bearing in mind it lasted a year think how many smiles i could of had if i had had a Peter 2012 calendar ? As a photographer i really appreciate the calendar more than most as i like to study another photographers work. The only downside is thanks to the post office damaging the calendar in delivery quite badly ( something stabbed through "all" the packaging ? ) the front cover has a tear. Thankfully the cardboard insert saved the day and the rest of the calendar was ok. The other good part of this calendar is the important dates of each month are printed just to the side of the monthly block of dates. This makes it easy at a glance to see whats coming up.
