I seem to have enabled myself!

Oh dear. My last post, followed by playing around with a Word file and making templates of all the pages I would want to have in my filofax has led to me enabling myself!! But… not into the Cavendish after all I think.

I was browsing eBay (as you do) and saw a new Aston pocket, in Orchid, for less than £30 including P+P. Well, I just had to. Don’t tell me you wouldn’t have been tempted… Anyway, I ordered it on Wednesday night (I was feeling blue and wanted to cheer myself up – another good reason to get it…) and it arrived this morning! Good service! For the moment, I am going to leave the contents pristine, in case I don’t get on with downsizing, in which case I will sell it again (At this point I imagined this from my DH: “ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Oh really?? Because so far you haven’t sold any of the other filofaxes you haven’t found a use for!” but I just ignored it!).

Anyway… here are a couple of sneak preview shots of it intact, with the baby Cavendish and the big brother Cavendish next to it for comparison. And yes, I do realise it might be quite a mountain to climb to downsize from the glorious beast that is big brother Cavendish, into the petite and delicate Aston.

 My first job is to play with a Word file to make a WO2P diary layout that I like, then work out this merge-thing that the geniuses Ray (My Life All in One Place) and Steve (Philofaxy) have sussed…

More soon!


  1. Such a gorgeous colour the Aston. Can't wait to hear how you get on with the downsize, maybe you can inspire me to try again :)


  2. @Ray
    Thanks!! I battled a bit, but I got there in the end. I wanted something really simple and I think I managed it.

  3. @Louloudorset
    I'm going to be away for a few days but I will post on the new set-up very soon!! You never know - it might inspire you?? You'll have to let me know if it does!

  4. So pretty!!! Looking forward to seeing it in action :o)

  5. Ooh - very nice! Looking forward to the follow-up.

  6. Mmm, I so understand your problems, having such beauties under one roof! Enjoy the change and do tell about the results!

    PS. Are you married to my husband??? :-D

  7. Gorgeous! I've noticed the cheaper Astons on eBay & have been resisting... Now back down to 2 as I gave one to my Dad & he loves it :)
