All set up for autumn in my ochre Malden!

As I said at the start of the month, I'm so ready for autumn.  I decided to move back into my Malden as it feels perfect for this time of year.  As soon as I put my pages onto the rings I realised how much I had missed using it!  I still adore the leather and the beautiful ochre colour, it is definitely my most luxurious feeling planner.

My perfect planner for autumn

I think the Malden is the kind of Filofax that looks better and better the more you use it.  It can handle the odd scuff or scratch, they just add character.  It is nice not having to baby this binder, it can go straight into my bag and I don't have to worry about it.  I still love my yellow Original but I always have to be so careful with it so it doesn't get dirty or marked.  Using the Malden this past couple of weeks has been a refreshing change.

I have kept my set up the same, it has been working for me so I didn't feel the need to mess with it.  I have sections for my weekly pages, my monthly pages, my qimmis yearly overview, blog ideas, notes, lists and passwords.  I don't write my full password, just the first and last letter or number so if I lost my planner whoever found it wouldn't have access to too much information.  

I am using these amazingly autumnal dashboards from Mrs Brimbles,  I had to show them off because they match my Malden perfectly!  Every time I open my planner and see these they make me smile.  The hedgehog's rosy cheeks are so cute and I love the colours on the pumpkin one too.    

So that's me all ready to see out the last quarter of the year, bring on the toffee apples, warm cider and woolly jumpers please!

My week #37

So did you know I am a bit of a crazy cat lady?  I had a gift voucher for eBay so I went straight to one of my favourite sellers (rikyandnina) and when I saw these kitty stickers I had to buy them! 

My week in my Filofax #37

I had a bit of a mad week, everything that could go wrong did!  My washing machine broke down, my microwave was trying to explode, my toilet broke and the kitchen sink started to leak because of a faulty pipe.   I spent a lot of time  waiting in for repair men and plumbers but thankfully by Sunday everything was repaired and back to normal.

Fingers crossed this will be a better week!

My week #36

After doing a coffee themed week a little while ago I thought it was only fair to celebrate my love of tea and cake with it's own week too!  I brought these stickers from Paperchase ages ago but I'm using them very sparingly as they have been discontinued and I will be sad when they are all gone.  

My week in my Filofax #36

School started again this week so I spent a few days getting the house straight and then my tiny little girl had her first day at nursery school.  I couldn't believe how quiet it was without her but I'm hoping having mornings to myself means I can get more done, including more blog posts.  I have so many ideas that I haven't had a chance to write yet!

My week #35

Happy September!  This is the beginning of my favourite time of the year, I'm really looking forward to feeling a chill in the air and seeing the leaves change colour.  I might even have already sorted out a couple of my favourite jumpers and washed my big winter coat in preparation! 

My week in my Filofax #35

I had quite a few things listed to do last week, most of them were getting things ready for school starting again tomorrow.  That meant I didn't have enough room for recording my feelings each day so I used one of my cute owl note cards instead.  I'm expecting my pages will be fuller once I have to start adding reminders about school events, choir practises and homework.  I might have to use note cards each week to give me extra space so I can keep using the journalling stamps.

My week #34

Hi!  I went with a simple floral theme this week, I got the washi tape in my Linky Box last month and loved the yellow and peach combination.  The quote I used was "End of summer winds make people restless".  I know it isn't Autumn until nearer the end of September but as the school holidays are nearly over it does feel like the end of summer now. 

My week in my Filofax #34

I announced the winners of my giveaway yesterday, no one has claimed their prizes yet so if you entered check here to see if it is you.  If the prizes aren't claimed by Sunday 31st August I will draw new winners.

As you can see from the feelings stamps I used the start of my week wasn't great.  I don't really want to go into too much detail, mainly because it's boring instead of private but there was some trouble on the street where I live and property was being damaged.  I think the police got to the bottom of it as it stopped on Thursday and, fingers crossed, everything has been ok since then.  I just think if I am going to use journalling stamps I should record the bad as well as the good otherwise what is the point.  

Thanks for stopping by!
