I May Have Done Something Stupid… (But I’m Incredibly Excited!) & Selling My Personal Kendal!

Today I was having one of “those” days.  You know the types – you’re shattered from the week, waiting for Friday to be over and done with so you can just get home and relax, but work just seems to pile and pile, and you’re not in the mood whatsoever!  Well, I had a huge case of the “please be 5.30pm already” bug today.  On top of that, I had a bit of a spat with a really dear friend of mine which made me feel quite ill (I still don’t feel quite myself after it even now to be honest), I have been having car problems, my tooth has broke, I overslept, I keep breaking glasses and generally being clumsy… and my possible big news has been delayed – yet AGAIN!  It’s naturally not my week right now.  

So today I browsed E-Bay and my eyes landed on a Personal Orange Osterley for sale in Germany.  The advert said it would not ship to the UK however I’ve read in some cases the sellers do make exceptions – I thought “I might as well ask – don’t ask, don’t get!”.  I was one of the lucky ones – the Seller, Stefanie, was so lovely and agreed to sell to myself despite me being in the UK.  I don’t think I’ve ever been so nervous and excited processing a payment before! 

Stefanie, if you do come back to visit my blog, I’d just like to say your English was so much better than my very poor German, and you were fantastic to deal with – thank you so much for posting out to the UK, I appreciate it very much 🙂 .  I can’t wait to see how I can use the Osterley!

I am now sitting here wondering how on earth I’ve managed to allow myself to part with such money – however I’ve had my eye on an Orange Osterley since last year and I’ve never really been able to stop thinking about it.

So, to justify my splurge, I’ve decided (amongst many other things) to sell my Filofax Kendal!  You may recall it was my first venture out into the world of Personal Filofaxes after a short stint with my Lilac Pocket Metropol.  My Kendal has travelled the UK with me keeping me in check as a Rep however since I purchased my Grey Malden it’s been housebound – box bound – with old diary inserts and report notes to keep it company.  I just know that it ought to be back out there, travelling, living life and getting lived in and cherished and looked after.  

So if you’re on the lookout for a Personal Kendal, let me know 🙂

On the subject of Filofax selling, I’m considering selling the Slimline Finsbury (same as the one I purchased for my dad without all the modifications haha).  I originally thought it would be great as a meeting planner and for me writing meeting notes (it has a lovely professional edge and the small rings are easy to write in, me being left handed and all).  But I’m really reluctant to part with it for some odd reason…  I’m not sure :/

Anyhow, the wait is on now for the infamous Osterley – I believe I ought to give him a name – how about something really original like “Ozzie” the Orange Osterley?

Actually, thinking about it, it’s ironic, as I love “Aussie”‘s.

And with that, I think it’s time for me to finish off my RAK and get it posted 🙂 

Catch you later

August RAK wishlist

Hi All!

Today I posted my RAK wishlist on the FiloRAK’s Facebook page… which obviously, I’m not expecting anything to come back from it but hey ho, wishful thinking!

Here is my wishlist if anyone is interested 😉

1. Pilot Frixion Pens in Orange, Green or Brown (any erasable pen make actually!)

2. Chores/Events Stickers

3. Cardstock, Stickers or Washi Tape (bohemian print inspired)

4. Cotton Cream Filofax Personal Blank Notepaper (or orange lined)

5. Books about Time Management or Planner Organisation

6. Cat Paperclips!

7. Stronger Personal Hole Punch

8. Personal Orange Osterley or Personal Ivory Deco

 

Naturally most of these are wishful thinking but hey ho…  you don’t ask, you don’t get!

 

I myself am working on my first ever RAK at the moment for Rosie, which I’m really excited to see what she thinks about it when I finally manage to finish it for her.  I never saw her original RAK list so I’m just going to send out a couple of random pieces that I’ve had lying around that I know are her “colours”.

I’ll be sure to post a photo on here soon however I don’t want to do it until she has had a chance to receive it 😉

So people, spread the love, share your wonderful creativity with the world and all will be well.

 

Until next time 😉

FiloRAK?

Hi Peeps!

The last couple of weeks I’ve been noticing the word FiloRAK being bounced around.  First I thought it was nothing, maybe a spelling mistake or something, until it was literally spelled out to me; a Random Act Of Kindness – Filofax styleee!  Oh how excited I got!

Tonight I sent a request to be added to the facebook page because I love making little bits and bobs, and I have sooooooooo much stationery now (washi tape, cardstock, stuff that I’ve made previously that has ended up just sitting in my little hat box waiting for their turn in my Filofax but never got their chance, random little inserts etc…)  I WANT TO GIVE A RAK!

Course, I’ve no idea how this happens etc, but hey ho…

Someone please fill this clueless girl in 🙂

Lots of love

Kel
