Woohoo!!! I have now got the wonderful pocket Ochre Malden from Lady Tammlyn - thank you!!! It was waiting for me to get to the UK and I haven’t been able to blog about it until now. I am still deciding what set-up I want and whether to separate my work stuff from my personal stuff. I have loved having all my stuff in one place (and I know it’s the sensible option), but if I don’t need to carry it round with me all the time, then is it really the best option for me…?
However, I came across two problems when I thought about this new baby:
i) I don’t have any pocket inserts at home as I gave them all away, so need to get a value pack of the standard ruled paper
ii) The ‘reason’ for purchasing this little beauty was so that I could put my iPod in the secretarial pocket at the back – it wasn’t until I put it in there and it fell out that I recalled that Steve’s post showed it being used for an iPhone, not an iPod – doh!!!

|Lovely front pockets :o)|
|Doh!!! It's not an iPhone - muppet!!!|
So, here we are in Karlsruhe after the Grand Prix and I mention to Ben that my iPod doesn’t stay in the pocket of my Malden – his response “Buy a cover for it, it should fit then” - how did he get so smart (or should that be – why am I such a muppet…?).
Today was shopping day, and as we were walking through the shopping centre I spied Thalia (which also has a store near us that stocks Filofaxes), so I thought I would pop in and check out there offerings. Ben spotted the Filo stand as soon as we got through the door (he is getting good) and there they had a good selection of filos (although rather scratched) and to my surprise they also had the value packs of pocket sized paper available in lined or quadrille at 5.50 Euro, not a bad price – so obviously I got both.
I am looking forward to brightening some of these up with stickers and washi tape once I have decided exactly what I want my filos to do for me.
We then went into Media Markt to check out the iPod covers and as I couldn’t find anything special I went for a reasonably stylish black one with some rubbery bits to help it stay in the pocket of the Malden.
|iPod cover with rubbery bits - ooh!!!|
|Fits like a dream - I think it's settling in for a sleep...|
|This post wouldn't be complete without a Malden family photo :o)|
