I have not spotted many Filofaxes in the wild – the last one before today was a turquoise A5 Finsbury being held by a medical rep in the pharmacy. It looked battered, loved and stuffed to the gills 🙂
Today I went out for lunch with my stepdaughter and she asked me for the phone number to my hairdresser. Imagine my delight when she whipped out her Filofax to record it!
I gave her one of my bronze domino snake Filos over three years ago when she started university. She was absolutely delighted with it and we spent the evening going through my refill spares setting it up. I was so glad to have been able to spread the Filo joy but was convinced that the size, weight and her iPhone would mean the novelty would wear off and it would end up on a shelf.
she carries it everywhere, has made her own tabs for it, writes her daily appointments in her WOTP with little notes down the side. She has articles, business cards, vouchers and coupons and two pens in it. You can see it has been used but it has no wear at all on the binder so it can take a battering.
Oh I am ever so proud!
