Happiness is…. Filofax week 5

Cute cupcakes and pink polka dot this week. It’s the start of the annual teaching job fest, so all of a sudden appointments and to dos are full of schools and work. The transparent dashboard becomes so useful here, with space for more to do (Kate Sutton from Amazon this week) and the inevitable phone numbers to ring for another visit. It will be like this until mid June.



Happiness is ….. Filofax week 4


Back to school for everyone last week. I am using purple highlighting on the date circle to show days I can work and highlight work entries to make them clear. The colour coding has worked well this week as has my muji stamp. Sticky notes from Cath Kidston on Amazon.

Filofax week 3


Week three; Easter break with my three and not that much to do. We had days out planned and visits to my Mum who is due to have her gall bladder removed this Friday. You can see my muji stamp came; the ink colour is called toffee and is beautifully pale but visible against the black ink. Colour coordination system set up, too, with different highlights for different areas of my life. I use the pens to mark off what I’ve done.

The post-it is, sadly, a bright fluorescent square from Staples, but my cute ones came from Amazon so next week I’m hoping even they will have a smiley effect on me. You can see a slight glare on the right page from my dashboard, where the post-it is stuck and a sticker sits, an instant win from McDonalds Monopoly game for 50 free prints from Snapfish. I will be using that one for sure!

Happiness is….. Filofax week 2


I posted this on AJCC last week, but since making my diaries shine is about making me happy I think it needs to be here.
A week in Ireland. See the checklists of things to do or eat? The green highlighter is my colour code for family social events and what else is a holiday but an extended social occasion? Best activity….. Shooting! I am a good shot. Unusually.
