  1. Yeah, wasn't much on FB anymore for 2 years now and have finally requested to delete my FB account :-)

  2. This was such an interesting one. I actually have all my emergency information at all times on my planner in case of emergency. There has been times when I´ve needed to be rushed to hospital and in those cases, I´ve had my planner at the ready. I once even came out of shock just to mumble to the paramedics "the red planner on the desk, TAKE IT!" before lights went out again and sure enough, I woke up in a hospital bed, with my Malden waiting patiently on the table next to the bed. I also have printed emergency information on the first page of my planner (it is in a plastic envelope, printed on bright yellow paper on black ink and a yellow sticky on top of the envelope. On the sticky note I´ve written with waterproof red ink "S.O.S. Read in case of emergency." I have rare genetic conditions that will requite immediate medication (and that medication is unknown to majority of medics here due to the very rareness. The things genealogy will to to ´ya...) and I also have a SOS bracelet in which I have written on waterproof paper with waterproof ink immediate information, and also there is a note to be found "find a planner for more detailed medical information on its first page". Needless to say, I don´t go out without my planner. Not even to take the recycling out.

    Now, onto planner sizes. I need to get us moved within a month. I was actually contemplating adopting a larger planner just to be able to do more of a detailed plan. There are some wonderful a4- sized planners about...In fact, just for inspiration I would be very interested to see Karine´s newest system. I actually am now doing more of a detailed version in a5 as a bound version, while the pocket is orbiting with me as a satellite.

  3. Steve, if there is a possibility to make the 5 year journal pages, that would be AMAZING. I have a 5 year journal, but for the life of me I can't keep it up. I would love to keep an month of pages in my planner as so keep up the 5 year journal.
    It was nice to hear the back-up tips. I have my most important information and pictures back-up on my office computer and also on a stick that I leave at the office. And I have a back-up at home.

    1. Yes I will sit down and try this out when I get a moment. I'm thinking of either 4 or 5 days (years) per page so the 1st Jan page would have 4 years on it etc.

    2. Yeeheee for Mr Philofaxy :). I would LOVE personal size :) (daring to ask)

    3. Email me steve at philofaxy dot com and I can send you the first prototype version 5 years, personal on A4
