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

All these notebooks

This post has been inspired by comments from two lovely friends: Alex W. in the 'real world' who mentioned notebook fetishes when she visisted and saw this bureau, and blog-friend ReginaMary who asked in the comments on Friday's post if I have a separate use for each of my planners and how I keep it… Continue reading All these notebooks

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). When I… Continue reading Suddenly November

Planning Jan-Jun 2020

It being slap-bang in the middle of the year, this seems like a good time to reflect on what I am enjoying right now about my planner setup, not to mention what has changed or not changed since the beginning of the year. I started the year in my Filofax Classic Pastel A5 Notebook in… Continue reading Planning Jan-Jun 2020

An unexpected find

I picked up this item in my local branch of Morrisons' supermarket this week for the princely sum of £3.00. It isn't pretending to be a high quality product, but I found it irresisible because of the 9-ring mechanist which looked surprisingly similar to a Filofax Deskfax configuration. Filofax have made many different sizes of… Continue reading An unexpected find

One book July? I’m in!

Since 2014, some enterprising ladies on the internet have been running a challenge called One Book July. If you're not part of the "planning" community everything I am going to write from here on in will seem a little odd, or totally crazy, to you, but you may enjoy it all the same. What is… Continue reading One book July? I’m in!

Planning – a new experiment

*For a better view, click on any photo to see the full-size image. As I mentioned in my wrap-up post from National Stationery Week, I was unlikely to continue using the ring-planner I had set up due to size issues and personal preferences. The more I think about it, the more useful I find that… Continue reading Planning – a new experiment

You know it’s coming

Oh, so it's that time of year, is it? The time when even monogamous me gets the pretty, flitty thoughts and starts digging about in her planner patch. In keeping with the general story of my life, I am in limbo at the moment and I need something to happen before I can make a decision… Continue reading You know it’s coming
