My Week #13

Bit of a boring week, seemingly! Random fact – I actually wrote cake instead of week at first because cake was offered… I realised as I was eating said cake.

Another annoying random fact – I wrote on the sticky that there was a train at 13:48… It was actually at 13:33. I had to wait around for the 15:34 one xD Sometimes having a Filofax doesn’t mean you are organised 😉


Motex Embosser

You may remember my birthday post where I mentioned the Motex embosser that I bought… I decided to use it today on my Filofax dividers as I had to cover up some text!

You may also remember me saying that I was keeping a finance section in my filofax… That has now disappeared. I just wasn’t using it and I figured it was a waste of space. Instead, I have set up a blog section. I needed somewhere to jot down blog post ideas and to keep track of things. Now I needed the embosser stickers because I realised that I had none of the yellow martha stewart tabs left! I had to re-use the one that I had written ‘finance’ onto.

I designed the divider to match my others, and chose butterflies because I just love them!

I found these inserts online, and thought they fit in well with what I needed! I’m using the blogging plan at the moment to keep track of the books that I have to review!

I’m a little unsure about the tab stickers at the moment – the black just seems really harsh. I need to get some more colours!

My Week #12

Ugh, I have been horribly ill this week.

Monday was fine. Worked at the other B&M store in town as they needed help. Tuesday was okay – slight sore throat. Wednesday I only managed to drag myself out of bed at 11:30 because I felt horrendous. I hate lying in so late. My head was pounding and my throat was killing me. The cough started to appear… Thursday the cough was in full swing but I had to go into uni for a meeting. Same on Friday, though I had a lecture instead. Worked all weekend and this cough is still here. So not a nice week to be honest. That’s why my week looks quite empty!

23 days until I go to Finland though! I bought a new backpack that I’ll be using as my carry-on, and I’m going to test that out tomorrow. Not filling it as much as I will be for Finland, but I can see how it holds up with a day of walking! Going to Talkin Tarn to make the most out of the 100-400mm lens that I managed to book out.

Filofax tip: Carrying washi tape.

Last week I really needed to add some things into my diary, and I didn’t have my colour coding tape to do it. Disaster, I know! Hahah. Anyway, I’ve seen this done before and I figured it was a great idea… Now I have the colours that I need on a little piece of plastic and they fit easily into the business card wallet at the back of my Filofax.

Not everyone colour codes, but if you do this is a lot easier than carrying lots of pens around! I’ve been debating getting rid of my 4-colour pen but I know as soon as I do I’ll want it again!

My Week #11

I went home this week and had a nice few relaxing days with my family! Also got a hair cut, and went shopping! I don’t really have anything else to say… Anyone been up to anything interesting?

My Week #9

I feel like I haven’t stopped all week, even though Wednesday was a completely lazy day. I didn’t go to the (voluntary!) sessions – I felt too tired and achy! I just lay in bed for a while and then did my AB work! I had my Animal Behaviour assignment deadline last Friday and I’m a little scared now that I’ve handed it in!

Our media project deadline is this Friday, and I just can’t wait for it to be over! This week will be an editing week – I’m just so glad that I don’t actually have to do much. We can sit down and edit videos/do the write up… I don’t have to be outside filming! Such a relief.

Work was super busy today, completely non-stop on the tills for about two hours from when we opened, and then just busy right up until closing time. Everything aches!

One week to go until I get to go home for a few days! So looking forward to it… I miss Manchester and Wigan/Leigh. Yes, I really do.

My Week #8

Tired. Want this media assignment to end, sick of working every weekend and I can’t wait to go to Finland in April. All I’m looking forward to this year really!

My Filofax collection.

I thought I would show you my collection and just tell you what I use each one for! I own 8 Filofaxes altogether, and not all are ‘properly’ being used, but I have something in each of them! Here’s my shelf… Besides the bright pink (I only got that one because I couldn’t get blue at the time!) you can see that my colours are all quite dark/muted.

Personal Sized

Pink Olympic Line Burst – Green Songbird – Ultra Violet Domino – Green Original – Black Finsbury

So my Olympic just holds the information sheets that came with the organiser. The Songbird contains last year’s diary, and some old note sheets that I thought I might want to go back to. The Domino holds unused notepaper, list pages, dividers, wallets etc. The Original only holds a new 2014 Filofax diary, which I am not actually planning on using… The Finsbury is being used as an address book!

A5 & Pocket Sized

Purple Patent Original – Red Mode

My A5 Original currently holds some recipes and blog information. I have other sections in there but they’re not really being used so it needs sorting out really! The pocket Mode is being used as my ‘expedition planner’ and it’s what I got as part of a project run by Janet at ‘This Bugs Life’.

You may be wondering about the 8th Filofax… I’m sure you’ve all seen my Holborn posts! This is my current favourite, and I can’t see myself moving out of it any time soon. This is my weekly/daily/life.

My Week #7

Well, here you can see my new washi tape! I’ve decided that the tape will be used for things that are happening at specific times – work, uni lectures, appointments etc. Anything else will be written in using the colour code with my 4 colour pen. I like it because I can see the main things at a glance.

Already planning out next week and it’s looking to be a busy one!

Colour-coding with Washi.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I had received some thin washi tapes that I had ordered. They’re actually more of a pastel colour than I had imagined, but I do like them! Some colours are a bit too light (like the first green!) and I won’t be using them for colour coding. I actually don’t have enough things to colour code at the moment but I suppose there’s gaps just in case! Saying that, I’ve just decided that the green above the ‘uni’ one can be for my volunteering. It’s usually with university, so that fits with the green, but the different shade will allow me to differentiate them… Awesome! (And they’re also the wrong way round on the page – argh!)

You’ll see this colour coding in effect in my ‘My Week’ post on Sunday.
