  4. Mother's Day, because it moves around so it's important that I remember it so I can treat my mummy :) Also Father's Day for my daddy!!

    On another note, I've found a stockist (in the US) for the Personal Malden in Ochre :) And I'm thinking of buying it for my birthday, but I haven't made my mind up yet! What do you guys think? I love the Malden range and the ochre colour is gorgeous, although I haven't seen it in person...

  5. I have to through out another subject due to my excitment.
    I noted on a previous post I had ordered the Finsbury zip A5 because I was done trying to use a new and different system/brand.
    I just couldn't get in my mind that Filofax would work no matter how I setup the pages.
    Well lucky for me, having the Time System and Daytimer in my hands for a few days to try, I realized that the ability to move pages and tabs around in a Filofax actually was the right planner for me. My major issue has always been a place to write notes that I would see everyday without turning tabs. So far the 3x6 inch "postit" notes seem to be working great as I can move the note from page to page and write my weekly "to dos" on them. The Finsbury is really nice, I ordered mine in black and I like the tough side of the leather.
    Just wanted to say I'm back to the Filo and hopefully for good!

  6. Well today is definitely Filofax Day for me - I just treated myself to a new Personal Finsbury in Aqua - it's less fattening than an Easter egg!

  7. Every FFAF is a GOOD FRIDAY!!! And of course I had to have a reminder in the Filofax to buy Hot Cross Buns and butter,ready for today.

  8. I agree with Katka.m- that definitely should be a t-shirt!

    And since it is a FFAF- how does the leather of the grey Malden compare to previous colors? Is it as luxe as the black and crimson, or more like the complaints I have heard about the ochre?

    Excitement is definitely bubbling over for US release!!!

  11. I don't use moleskins myself, but I just found on iTunes a Moleskin notebook app.
    I wonder if Filofax will ever look at making an app? I know nothing compares to to the real thing, but I think there would be major potential for a Filofax app.People could create as many side or top dividers as they wanted to, you could choose the 'cover' of your 'iphone-fax' from all that are available. You could choose different page styles, even different line widths. Perhaps you could even invent you own pages right there on your device? The iPhone could be the equivalent to a Personal or Pocket size, while the iPad could be a Personal size showing two pages, or an A5 size. I think it would be a lot of fun.

  12. SE I'm not an iUser but I think this is a FANTASTIC idea!! Filfoax should definitely do an app like this!!

  13. Savannah- I've read a few places that the ochre doesn't have the same shine or as nice of a feel in the hand as the black and crimson.

    I haven't been able to see any in person, so I am just going off of those lucky enough to own them!

  14. The leather on the ochre is waxed, whereas the other colors are not so they are more shiny. The idea is that scratches should be easier to buff out on the waxed ochre leather.

  15. I have just cracked and bought myself an Ebony Deco Personal from City Organiser - They are currently on offer!

    Well, I have a broken ankle so I need something to cheer me up!

  16. J-I adore my pocket Malden ochre and I feel more attachment to it than any other. It is not as smooth- it has more texture, looks more vintage; distressed; more natural, but the essential leather is still has that wonderful thickness and pliability that you have to feel to appreciate. It does have a shine but if you like real shiny it appears black is the way to go. I belive it the shines more than the rest. I like the ochre pocket better than my crimson personal and think the leather is just great. I think it's just personal preference. Although I don't own a grey (Steve may be more helpful with this), it very much looks like it has same texture as the red.

  17. Savannah- thanks so much for the additional input on Malden color. I wasn't trying to say they ochre was bad, I just have heard it doesn't feel quite as soft as the other colors.

    I definitely don't want something uber shiny, and really do love the vintage qualities of the ochre, I just don't have enough that would match it to make it worth the investment.

    Let's hope the grey is somewhere in between!

  18. After seeing you website and personal domino, grey seems the way to go for you for sure. Start saving a dollar a day for it's release in July! You can get it for 20% off and free shipping at all times from Pens and Leather. Goldspot and The Daily Planner also offer 20% discounts at all times. So don't worry about the "sale" price.

    As far as the ochre goes, I was just afraid there was a design flaw that would show up in the future, hence my query.

  19. Steve, what happened to the site layout???? I see all links in blue, and I cannot get used to it. Really liked the old layout much better, if you don't mind me saying ...

    I've not changed anything, I think it is a Google problem, sometimes it loads correctly other times it doesn't. It's been happening for a few days now as well on and off.
