It’s been almost 10 years since I saw my sister Dr Deborah Brunt in person. As kids, my sister and I were always together. I learnt so much from Deborah growing up. She was and still is an inspiration to me and in August we will be reunited at long last. I am travelling to New Zealand to meet my sister and her family. As I prepare for this special occasion I have been looking for a gift for my sister that I know she will love and I’ve found the perfect gift! A Stone Grey Filofax Malden A5 Organiser!
My Sister A Role Model
Deborah is one year older than me, we grew up as sisters and were best friends really. Deborah did everything a year before me. Each milestone, such as getting a bus pass, starting high school and finding a job made it easier for me because I had someone with experience to show me how things were done.
I never realised just how beneficial it had been having a sister do everything before me. She really did help me, especially in showing me how to study, prepare for exams and how to apply and go to university. I really did have a secret weapon in my sister and she really showed me the best ways to do things.
When my sister was training to become a Doctor, she took me to University with her. I was still at high school but remember sitting in the lecture theatre with Deborah spending time in the computer labs and visiting the book store.
My sister had a fantastic filofax organiser where she had all her plans organised. There were no iphones or ipads 20 years ago but this didn’t stop Deborah from being organised and having everything in order.
I was so impressed that I bought my first filofax when I started University. Now we are grown women, Mother’s and are both working, I figured the best gift I could give my sister when I meet her again would be a brand new Malden Filofax. I’m so excited!
Filofax Malden A5 Organiser A Gift For My Sister
I ordered the gift for my sister from Pen Heaven. I got my own Finsbury Filofax from Pen Heaven last Christmas and I know the quality of these Filofax organisers are premium.
To make this gift for my sister extra special I had her name Dr D Brunt embossed on her new Malden A5 Organiser and I chose a greyish colour which looks pretty spectacular.

Using A Filofax To Stay Organised.
Having six kids in the home and being a Doctor, my sister is pretty busy. In fact Deborah’s kids go to school and take part in extra curricular activities. Having an organiser to plan the week, record what is happening and keep on top of things is always going to be useful for my sister.
I love that the Malden Filofax is large enough to keep sufficient notes in but also small enough to fit in a handbag.
Deborah can take her planner to work and it has a fantastic section to keep her bank card, driving licence and library card.
The Filofax has a zip pocket for cash and money and a pen loop for making notes on the go. I’m so pleased with this gift and can’t wait to give my sister her new Filofax in August. It’s going to be so exciting.
I’m really pleased with the features in the Malden Filofax. I do love the colour of the filofax and the fact you can emboss.
