One Day Diary event for Mass Observation Archive

Today (Thursday 12th May*) is the day that the Mass Observation Archive are asking for people across the UK to keep a diary of their day and donate it to the archive.  Read about it on their website here.

Thanks for Kathryn at Archives and Auteurs for the info about this and the tweets from MassObsArchive on twitter for reminding me about it and prompting this post.

Incidentally Faber has a series of Mass Observation books, including one on the May 12th 1937 diary day.
