Guildford extra slim!

Those of you who have children might have experienced the special feeling when you first meet your older child again just after the new baby has arrived - suddenly the older child is incredibly big! Huge! A giant!

It happened to me today. No, I didn't have a new baby, but I did meet a new filofax! Guildford extra slim came in the mail this afternoon.

First impression: But it's so tiny?! 

Second impression: It's really, really tiny!

Third: It's like an a4, except it's for a doll's house?!

Fourth: It's small even for a wallet...

See for yourself! Here it is, on top of Roxy, my A5 Finsbury:

And here with it's bigger relative, the Guildford slimline:

And here it is again, next to my mini Finsbury:

I bought it used, for just under 10 euros (where's the euro sign on my keyboard?). The rings are 11 mm and in good condition. Only 54g. The leather is the same as in the other Guildfords I own. Smooth and very soft.  No mesh pockets, I'm happy with that... No pen loop.

There's some sign of wear on the outside, but nothing that bothers me. 

I will use it for my action lists, which have so far travelled mostly in the mini Finsbury. The Finsbury has a calendar in it, but I very rarely use it so I think I'll manage with a monthly overview instead. I can put some of my most used cards in the pockets, like my id, bank and credit card, passcard for the office, public transport card. But that's about it. 

See, the action lists have already moved in! There's to much personal stuff in there so I won't show you more than this, sorry... ;-) But I have ten or so sections for actions in context, e.g., at home, at the office, talk to my DH, buy, pay, findout etc. and I use them all the time.

I think I will be very happy with this filofax! But I think it will take me atleast a day or too to look at the others without thinking they're too big and clumsy!

New arrivals - meet Luxe, Malden, Guildford and Cuban!

They're here! Just a quick post to show you the new arrivals!

The red Finsbury I mentioned, arrived first  and has already found a new home. From the top: ochre pocket Malden, brown pocket Cuban, ebony pocket Luxe and a black pocket Guildford!

The Malden is now my yoga binder, I keep track of my classes and a journal of my practise. My husband liked the Cuban, so he's using it as a notebook, with notepaper only. The Luxe and the Guildford only arrived today so I haven't had time to figure out what to use them for yet. For now I just sniff them and play with them... 

Look at all that snow*

A filofax parade... All of them are unused, except the Malden who shows some sign of use. Still lovely though!

I don't really need four pocket filofaxes... Winning them all was quite unexpected! But now they are here :-)

* I wanted to show you how much snow we have had in Stockholm, as well as the filofaxes... The light conditions weren't any good at all, but I think you can see that it's a lot of snow out there on the balcony. We had 35 cm in a day! People have been digging out their cars all day outside my window here.

A present!

My husband has been travelling far and for a long time, and when he got back I got this!

A cute little notepad and holder for my gtd inbox notes!

The pad can go in like this or upside down (convenient if you're lefthanded).

The cutest pad. I love how there is a white border around the grid pattern. There are 80 sheets, and I've already used ten or so...
