    Watch how I created these pages here:

    "Remember, if you are criticizing you are not being grateful. If you are blaming, you are not being grateful. If you are complaining, you are not being grateful. If you are feeling tension, you are not being grateful. If you are rushing, you are bit being grateful. If you are in a bad mood, you are not being grateful." 

    This week was an emotional week for me as my last living grandparent had passed away. Even though she wasn't really in my life, and I had only met her once, it still hits home. My father is the eldest of 12 children. She had been sick for a very long time, so it was no surprise to us once we heard the news. It was time her suffering ended, so she can be at peace. I would to thank those of you who sent your condolences to our family at this time. 

    It was also a time of celebration as it was my father and husbands birthdays. 

    This week I went back to using my A5 Filofax. I felt that I didn't try to figure out a better system that would work for me. It takes time to make a planning system work for you and make it flow in your life. I use check lists mainly so I thought I would need more tick boxes when using the A5 size. I realized now that I just need more space to write.  So, this time around I only use 5 tick boxes and now write more in detail what I write in my Personal size. I am still using my Personal size Filofax on an everyday basis and for on the go planning. It does seem a bit redundant having the same information in two planners but I love using the A5 because it gives me that space. It's always better to have more/extra space, than not enough. Sometimes I don't have enough space in my personal, so that is when I can be more detailed in the A5. I can also decorate more in the A5 which is always fun. I can have the same theme going in my decorating, and change it up a bit so that it's not an exact match. It also makes me use my stickers more. NO MORE HOARDING! I've got to put what I have to use. The personal can stay in my purse, and I don't have to bring it out to plan, because the A5 is my stay-at-home binder and I can cross reference with the Personal if I have to. 

    That is pretty much it for this week. I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.
