So, we are finally close to year's end! honestly, I can't wait until the new year starts as I've been itching to use my new cat planner.
Also, because I've decided not to use a Filofax in 2012.
The reason for this is that life, at least mine, is quite monotonous. Monday to Friday is work, and weekends relaxing and going out for walks.
I don't have a busy social life, let alone a social life!
To tell you the truth, I don't mind. I like it like this, just having few friends.
So yes, a Filofax is not useful to me no more. Especially after a nice friend sent me that beautiful cat planner.
It's an A5 bound planner, loaded with lovely cat pictures. It is also undated, so if I wanted, I could save it for another year (but I won't). This means I can handwrite each date into the spaces with the ink/language/font I choose.
It has a double spread for the monthly view, with the days as squares, and following the spread, a week on two pages.
Since it's undated, there are 5 of these weekly spreads in between the monthly views.
And after the year, there are lined pages for notes, that also have those cute cat pictures.
The planner comes in a transparent plastic sleeve, and there is also a decorated envelope for mementos, with a round elastic attached to one side. By keeping the envelope inside the book, the elastic will act as a closure.
In November I started to pencil in the dates, but I didn't finish. Once I have all the way I want them to, I will proceed to ink them.
I am very excited about this planner, I think that the fact that it is a fun planner, rather than a plain Filofax, will make me use it more. The weight is also a factor; as it is slightly lighter than my current pocket Filo, I will be able to bring it with me more often.
