Wiki baptism by fire :-) I think the best effort is:

OK. I made some slightly naughty timing trick, after hitting the same  
problem (Moon activity). After asking the list Tomeu suggested the  
less naught trick is to see if you are offered a Journal object_id.  
I've been deflected by localisation/Pootle since then (my excuse), so  
I've not implemented this yet. It should go something like this:

from sugar.datastore import datastore
... ...
... ...
dataStore = datastore.get(self.handle.object_id)
if dataStore == None:
	# I'm a journal virgin
	# resumed
