Filofax – one (plus) week in

Well, here's what I would have written and posted last Friday if a broadband issue hadn't offered me the chance to spend my weekend doing analogue-only things instead. I'm now one week (plus) into using my A5 Filofax Original as both my planner and journal/notebook, which seems like the ideal time to do a proper… Continue reading Filofax – one (plus) week in

My 2021 planner setup

Ta Da! I have been toying with my 2021 planner setup for quite some time and now that the new year is so tantalisingly close, I'm ready to put the finishing touches to the whole caboodle. That makes it sound so cut and dried, so decisive, so simple. The journey to where I am, though,… Continue reading My 2021 planner setup

Happiness Planner now and then

Whilst discussing my recently-completed Inspired Stories Daily Planner, I have alluded to a previous occasion when I had a daily planner which never really gelled with me. This was the 100-Day bound planner from The Happiness Planner, which I ordered back in August 2017.

Suddenly November

Since last week was quiet chez PamAlison, I've started working on my 2021 planner set-up. As you may recall, I'm going to use my A5 Filofax Original planner with the slightly narrower than A5 week to view pages from The Stamford Notebook Company (my initial thoughts on these inserts can be seen here).

Three Hundred

Welcome to the 300th post on my blog, which should by rights be a widescreen epic, but just how epic can a little old lady whittering on about knitting and stationery be? I've been asking myself if I am the same person today as I was when I began to blog and I think largely… Continue reading Three Hundred

All a-dither

I want to apologise, to begin with, for my absence from the blog this week. It just turned out to be the sort of week where the things that are happening are enjoyable, but don't really sum up to anything in the way of progress through life. I've marked this down as "must do better"… Continue reading All a-dither
