DodoPadler of the Day: Laurie

Hallooo dear DodoPadlers!  Miss Peabody here!

We have a special treat today here on Miss Peabody Writes!  DodoPadler Laurie is an American living in Scotland with her family.  Laurie uses a Dodo Wall Acad-Pad to keep her family informed of everyone’s comings and goings throughout the week.  She was happy to share some details with me of how she uses her Wall Acad-Pad along with the Save The Day reminder stickers.  Here is what she has to say about her Dodo Pad:

Laurie's Wall Acad-Pad

“I hang my Dodo Wall Acad-Pad on the messageboard in the kitchen so that everyone can see it.  I’ve included a couple of photos of a recent week as an example.

I use the top page for To-Do lists, and this particular week my son added his representation of a Dodo, complete with stickers for the mouth and hats on his head!

Here is a close-up of the weekly grid so you can see how I use it:

Weekly grid

You can see that I use the first column in the grid as Today, which is for things like holidays, trash collection vs recycling collection day, or on Monday of this week our house guests were leaving that day.  Then each person in the household has his or her own column, so I can see who is doing what and when all week.  My kids love the Dodo stickers because they are cute and because they allow them to know what’s going on since they can’t read yet.  I like that this system allows them to be a part of planning the week for the whole family and encourages organization from an early age.

In the left margin I write the dinner menus for the week so that I can plan my shopping and I never have that awful feeling of looking into the fridge at 5:30 pm wondering what to make for dinner!

I also use the Dodo Pad diary A5 Filofax insert in my Filofax, which is wonderful for adding fun to my day.  In it I use the grid to block out different categories of tasks for each day: Appointments, Household (where I write my cleaning schedule), Homeschool, Work, Personal (where I record daily exercise and other goals).

I love Dodo Pad diaries because they are so fun and engaging and, they are different every single week of the year.  They are proof that time management doesn’t have to be boring!”

Many thanks Laurie! It is so fascinating to see how different people use their Dodo Pads in different ways – I think the dinner menu on the left hand side is pure, but simple genius – I shall be telling cook to do the same here at Dodo Towers!

Would you like your Dodo Pad to be featured here on Miss Peabody Writes?  Please do tell us how you use your Dodo Pad diary, send us photos of your diary doodles, or tell us a story about your Dodo Pad.  We love to hear from you!  If you would like to share something with us, please post a comment!

I hope to hear from you soon!

Toodle-oo for now,

Miss P

Dodo News

Hallooo dear Dodopadlers!  It’s Miss Peabody here again.

This is great fun!   I am certainly enjoying this magnificent “internet” thing.  I thank all of  you who’ve left comments and, for those who haven’t yet, I do hope to hear from you soon!

As you can imagine I was especially pleased thrilled to see Lord Dodo’s comment that he will be returning early from the Dodolomites, and duly recorded his return in my Dodo Wall Pad which I have prominently displayed near my desk here at Dodo Towers to show all of our comings and goings.

Each of us has our own column on the weekly page to facilitate visibility so we all know at a glance whether Lord D is here or away, where Bert Whistle is off to on his latest fact-gathering mission, and whether Miss Davinia Dalrymple is out consulting with suppliers or simply ensconced in the stacks within the stock room.  My comings and goings are also recorded for, although I normally hold the fort here at Dodo Towers while others are away, occasionally I do go off on my hols to beautiful Glen Dodoe, a little-known glen deep in the Highlands of Scotland.

As I was inscribing Lord D’s anticipated return, I noticed on our diary page this week (as will those of you with a Dodo Pad) the anniversary of the birth of stuntman Evel Knievel.  He is most famous for his numerous spectacular stunts involving riding a motorcycle while jumping over as many cars as possible/large canyons/whatever seemed most dangerous at the time.  A truly remarkable man!

Another item of note: visitors to the Dodo Pad website will notice the dodo atop the right hand gatepost holding a sign announcing National Doodle Day!  Draw a doodle and take the chance to show off your artwork and benefit two excellent charities; Epilepsy Action and The Neurofibromatosis Association.  For details look at http://www.nationaldoodleday.org.uk and also in your Dodo Pad 2010 diary and/or your Acad-Pad 2009/2010 diary (in desk, mini or wall form) on the pages following the week beginning 22 February 2010.  You have some time to perfect your sketches before you submit your entry into the contest.  The winning doodles will be printed in a future Dodo Pad or Acad-Pad. Happy doodling!

There is always so much going on here at Dodo Towers!  Tune in for more news soon.

Toodle-oo for now!
