What’s in my Filofax

Well here we go.. Inspired by Philofaxy here is a peek into my life

My Raspberry Finsbury


This is what I open up to – a clear envelope with my baby and bits and bobs


And then my tabs/dividers. 1st is my diary (I have just printed stuff off the web straight onto the dividers). I use the column week on 2 pages that came with the Filofax.



And then my jace (my wee man) tab which just has info like sleeping/feeding patterns, day care info and doctory stuff.


Annnd then.. Lists – books I’ve read/want to read, music, movies etc



Then notes – basically just scribble and doodles and what not

Work – boring but just showing my dividers really.


And then dreams. This is basically centred around the house we are planning to build very soon.


Then the a-z tabs which I don’t use but maybe will one day and a notepad in the back.

So there you go. A quick look into how I use my Filofax.


It’s here!


Well, it’s here! My stunning a5 raspberry Finsbury! I’m in awe… I dont know where to start. It feels lovely, it’s perfect ‘in the box’ – $36!!! Come on! I was expecting something to be wrong – but no, big Fin is perfect!

It has come with wk per view in column format – I’m not so sure about that, but will give it a try. All I can think about is poor lil domino – all my hard work in filofunking down the sink. I have to be able to find some use for him! Surely!

I honestly have no idea where to begin, it’s perfect and on valentines day too! Better than the lotto ticket my man friend gave me!

I’m a bit nervous to even write in him. And I’m not even sure I want to funk him up – perfect just the way he is. Must be love!

Too excited – going to go cop another feel!

Over n out.



Great week! I met my Feb 10th deadline (banned myself from filofunking) and I won my eBay bid for a brand spanker a5 Raspberry Finsbury! $36 aus… Now that’s what I call a bargain!

Now the 3 – 5 day wait for it to arrive! Then to get my funk on again! Excited.

What else? My handsome lil man now has 2 front teeth, instead of one, and my handsome big man is on shocking hours for the valentines day rush (works at a flower auction) 😦 Can’t wait for Feb 15th. Busiest week since becoming a mumma bear (you should see lil domino – who doesn’t know yet quite what to do with himself when big fin arrives) so now to snuggle with my gorgeous lil boy – I have missed him so much!

Hope everyone has a big smile on their face this weekend, as I do!


my little domino


What is a blog? I don’t really get it, but going to have a crack regardless. I’m guessing it’s a diary/journal that the world can see. I’m fascinated by the fact that someone somewhere might read this, and it’s a little exciting. Blog. I have to say, I’m not a fan of the word. Blog. It’s ugly. And it is one letter off bog. Yuck.

This…’space’ is going to be dedicated to procrastination. Yes, it’s Saturday night, and yes I should be working. I have a 10th Feb deadline that I’m terrified of not meeting, and yet here I am. I blame my Filofax.

I received a personal Domino Filofax for Christmas. I now have a very unhealthy obsession with my little black book. I have never kept a journal, and rarely used a planner effectively for longer than 3 days, whether it be paper or computer/phone based.

I made a pact with my little Domino. 2012 is going to be the year of organisation, and you my little black book, are going to make it happen for me. But first we have to funk you up.

I then made a fatal mistake. I googled

how to make my Filofax funky

I stumbled upon this blogspot Philofaxy and now find myself in my current predicament. I spend more time reading about other peoples filofaxes, and ideas for mine, that instead of being organised and productive, I have a pretty Filofax. Yes pretty, but am I happy with it? Yes and no. I’ve made my own dividers – 6 out of stuff I found around the house, and jan – dec out of postcards from my favorite places. Then I see amazing dividers and find out I am not as creative as I once imagined – and have the urge to change mine (keep in mind, I should be working).

Not only that, I now want more. I want an A5 Osterley. It’s a bit lot out of my price range, so I want an A5 anything real leather. Hello eBay. I’m yet to win, but I do spend a fair bit of time looking and bidding (again, I should be working).

I can say that I am more oranised. I can also say that making myself organised has been counterproductive. Once I get over this need to pretty-fy my Filo, or my new one when I get it i think I will finally have a system that works for me.

So there it is. My first… Space.
