My Week #1: the reprise

I’m re-introducing the My Week feature! It’s been so long since I did it that I think I should probably start again from number 1, don’t you agree?

I’ve set myself up in an A5 Arc. I know, change again! I’m terrible for it. I’ve been so unsettled in the Personal Filofaxes, looking for a solution to the page size vs portability issue, and… I think the Arc might just be it. I already feel at home in it! I’ll blog about the setup soon.

Anyway, this is this week:


I’ve been rather busy! Between running and working, I’ve barely had a moment to breathe. I didn’t do the Parkrun on Saturday, because everyone else I run with dropped out, and I had no other way of getting there. Oh well, plenty more Parkruns to do in the future!

So, that was my week. How was yours?

Different Filofax WO2P layouts

Filofax Cotton Cream WO2P layout offer an equal space per day, compared to the usual WO2P which has larger weekdays and smaller weekends:




I thought I preferred the equal space layout, but after seeing both together like this I think I prefer the old style layout. Sometimes my weekends are busy, but I usually fill up a weekday box more than a weekend.

What do you think? Which do you prefer?

Filofax idea #2

Have you ever bought some sticker sheets to use in your filofax, but they’re simply too big to store in it?

No problem.

I had some beautiful sticker sheets I bought from Paperchase:


Lovely, but too big for my Filofax to hold comfortably. So I chopped them in half, careful not to cut any of the stickers:


I then glued them in, using up some scrap Filofax sheets in the process (this one being the “have you ordered your 2015 diary yet?” sheet:


I’m very happy with the result! I can now carry these stickers around me, and I haven’t even wasted any paper in the process!
