whats a girl to do?? ive seriously been thinking about whether to get a personal sized organiser as my pocket is just a little too small....but im torn. i love the Filofax Finsbury in blue, and would love a Rio in green or coral. But there are so many other organisers out there its hard to choose!! the Daytimer in green?? a Gillio?? a Van der Spek??
Does anyone know any others worth looking at??

I love spur of the moment trips.
Last Saturday was actually the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford, but seeing as it was £45 per adult we decided to give it a miss. Instead we headed off into the Cotswolds to Bourton on the Water and visited Birdland. The enclosures were a little tired looking but Eleanor loved it, especially the Kookaburras laughing and the 'Ingos -flamingos.
We had a lovely picnic next to the river, and E decided she wanted to paddle. So I took off my sandals, climbed into the FREEZING river and waited. Where she dipped her toes and declared it too cold. Meanwhile my feet had gone numb!!
Sometimes spur of the moment is the best.

I love my Paperchase planner (the one on the left). It is literally the best thing I've ever bought. My life now has order to it. The other two, both filofaxes - aqua Chameleon and a Ranger, also pocket size - were buys because I wanted to and have never been used.
But here's my dilemma. As much as I adore the size of my beautiful pocket planners, I just don't know if they're big enough any more. My Paperchase beauty is bursting and it's only july. But if I do buy a bigger one, I can't bring myself to use it until January. And then there's the choice!! Do I get a Filofax? Or go cheaper and opt for Paperchase again?

Madam has napped today for the first time in two weeks, so I thought I would be selfish. First up, peanut butter cream Krispy Kreme. Yum. Next, some scrapping!! But on sitting down, I rwally struggled to use the photos I had printed. Does anyone else do that?? Have high hopes then not actually feels inspired by your pictures?? So my mammoth session only ended.up with one layout, but I like it.
