The Malden Saga continues

Image
Friends I am embarrassed. Remember how I said that I had fallen out of love with my Malden? Mm-hmm..... Then I devoted an entire post to the fact that I would be moving on from my Malden. Uh huh. Well we are nearing the end of January and I AM STILL using my Malden!!!!! This filofax is like a bad ex boyfriend. Just as you realise you need/want to get rid of it, you remember how useful it actually is. Sigh.

But my life is pretty busy right now. And to be honest I just don't have the time or the inclination to set up a new filofax. Of course I could simply move the Malden's current contents into my lovely purple Finchley. And Ms Finchley actually matches my lovely new Bays. But I know myself. I would need to rewrite everything into crisp new pages. I would need to use different coloured pens. It would have to look pretty (you know I am vacuous). And I have so much useful information in my Malden that it would take forever (of course I exaggerate, maybe a good two days). It is soooooooooo frustrating!!

So until I can find the time I guess it will be me and my Malden. But Valentine's day is approaching. And we all know that it is the best time to break up with someone (well if you want to make an impression and be considered the world's greatest b***h/ b*****d). I like to be the best at everything. So Malden although you may be on borrowed time, you will live for another day. For now..............


MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA


Tell me lovelies. What should I do? Stick with the Malden or move on to the Finchley? Please share in the comments and have a wonderful day!

move to the finchley! I love it so much, and you know I am not a malden fan.
maybe you could devote one hour or 30 minutes every day to rewriting things, and be done in a week? say just move everything over and redo one section or bit at a time?

You know I love the malden. But I also love the Finchley! And that purple is so great. My suggestion is to move all of your Malden contents into the Finchley, but just for now. You can recopy and replace as you get the time. And in the meantime, you can enjoy the new Finchley. But that's just a thought.

I am not a Malden fan, but I say the most important thing in a filofax is functionality. If it is working for you, just roll with it.

I just moved filofax twice in a week. First from Malden to Domino, then from Domino to Kendal. And last night I did a major overhaul of the entire system within the Kendal, sorted out all my notes and archived what was not needed, copied as necessary. I'm very pleased with the results.

Lime Tree said...

I agree with girlinmaths! Set a time every day and move smoothly into your beautiful Imperial purple Finchley. Maybe just half hour/ twenty min every day till Valetine's Day?! ;D

Angeliki said...

That post made me laugh so much! I can't wait to see the set up of your new Filofax :)

Leia said...

Maybe it's a good idea to move to Finchley - new diaries are fun!

Anita said...

Mmm, tricky one as I love them both! Or you could wait for the purple Malden??

caribbean princess said...

Girlinmath that is a good idea and would be a lesson in patience for me. I shall think about it.

Kanalt another excellent idea as I am so impatient.

Josh if you have a blog please share. I love to read how people organise their filofaxes!

Oh Lime Tree I should do what you and Girl in math say. I am soooooooooo very impatient though!

caribbean princess said...

Angeliki you know I am ridiculous.

Leia I hear you. Which filofax are you using now?

Anita I am so excited about the purple Malden. But do I need another purple filofax???

michele said...

Your Malden setup is so beautiful - why would you want to change?!... my own musings.. I used my A5 Mustard Finchley to get me through my Project Manager certification so I am kind of sentimental about using a Finchley to get thru a degree.

Rori said...

The answer is, of course: Obviously you need another purple Filofax. That's like asking, "Do I need another pair of purple shoes?" XD
Hold out and move at Easter time when everything is new and fresh. xx

nina Elfenfisch said...

i think that´s a hard one.
finchley is supersoft and so ... just beautiful. the leather is gorgeous. but the same is with the malden.
so.... WAIT TILL SUMMER AND GET THE PURPLE MALDEN!!!!! i saw it a few hours ago and this colour is just gorgeous!!!!! holy...

caribbean princess said...

Michele I am really leaning towards just shifting the contents. Maybe next weekend :-)

Haha Rori. Why am I asking the obvious? I really DO NOT need more purple in my life!


Oh Nina where did you see it? Do you have any pictures? I hope it doesn't disappoint like vintage pink did!

nina Elfenfisch said...

actually i'm in frankfurt right now to join this years paperworld :}
i spent 2 full and overwhelming hours on the filofax stand, and the rest of this day online to update each one of you :) please have look at my current post. hope you like it
and of course steve also got informations (even if there are some mini differences with the one i received today - but wouldn't it be bored if we already would know every little detail :D )
