My week #47

This week's theme is another girly one, I just love the rose washi and the pink and mint colours together. 

My week in my Filofax #47

Monday was my birthday, I spent the day moving into my new Malden and then celebrating with my family on the evening.  We had a nice meal together and a lovely lemon drizzle birthday cake.  You can call it a birthday cake if you add candles right?

My cake

During the week I added a section to my Filofax for my Christmas plans.  I have started writing to do lists and gift ideas down when I get a chance.  I am full of the holiday spirit now everyone's birthdays are out of the way!  I usually put our Christmas tree up this weekend but I still have to rearrange the furniture in my living room before I can do that.  I am hoping to have done it by next weekend.  Yes I'm excited!

The rest of the week was busy, lots and lots of things to do but writing them down and checking them off kept me straight.  Having two children in school means there is always something I need to remember, even though a lot of the time I write the same reminders each week if I didn't note them down I really think I'd end up in a muddle.

I have a feeling that my weeks are only going to get busier in the run up to Christmas but that's ok, I will just focus on one thing at a time instead of the overall picture and that should stop me panicking.  Have you started your Christmas planning yet or is it still too early for you?


  1. I'm finding it difficult to believe Christmas is so close! I don't feel ready at all! The Malden is gorgeous!

  2. Thank you Angel Jem!
    At the moment I'm flitting between being calm and thinking I have plenty of time and then realising this time next month it will be Christmas Eve!
