I have been debating whether or not to post this as I didn’t want to jinx it but here goes.

I think I may have found the setup that works best for me – Filofax Personal Identity in black with an Arc A5 planner.  The Filofax has a mixture of refills from Day-Timer and Filofax themselves.  This is basically my diary – I have a month on two pages tabbed refill  for an overview and a week on two pages for planning out appointments and to-do lists for the week.  The Arc notebook is by my side everywhere and is basically my ‘inbox’ – I write everything in there and transfer/action it accordingly.  I haven’t had it set up long but it’s working so far – we’ll see.

See quite a few good films lately – eclectic mix

I’ll keep you posted :0)


Well, having returned from holiday, I have set up my A4 Filofax with help from the holepunch, Outlook and some printables from websites.  Feeling much more organised and finding that I am better at remembering things.

I decided that I then needed a notebook to have in my bag and my desk at work which could be for quick notes e.g. noting work shift times, contact details I’m given, shopping lists etc.  I wanted to find a refillable notebook system including a monthly planner refill.  Google turned up Rollabind which looked good but was a US website (I’m UK).  A UK-only search then brought up the ARC system by Staples.  On the ‘front page’, it stated that it had a number of different planner refills as well as notebook paper and other accessories.  Perfect.  Could I expand it?  Yes.  Could I divide subjects?  Yes.  Was there a ruler marker for a particular page I want to get to?  Yes.  So far so good.  I then spent some time looking for the aforementioned planner pages and failed.  They have many useful refills but not the most important refill I was looking for, despite it being listed on the front page.  I have e-mailed Staples and await their response.  I am sincerely hoping that they have not discontinued the planner refills.

Went to see the new James Bond film, Skyfall, last night and was very impressed.  It’s a lot more ‘personal’ than they’ve been previously and kept me enthralled all the way through which is unusual.  I’m still undecided on whether I like the theme tune.  Apparently Daniel Craig has signed up for another two so looking forward to those.  Also looking forward to the new installments in the Marvel series i.e. Thor, Iron Man, Avengers.

I’m partway through reading the latest book in the Vampire Diaries series and finding it difficult to put down.  It  was waiting for me when I got home from holiday so a nice antedote to the back-from-holiday blues.
