AND AN UPDATE FROM ONE OF MY READERS who made me think of something that had not occurred to me, heaven knows why as I have been driving for 35 years! (see comment below). A dashboard of a car where all the controls are easily available. As Davide (thank you so much!) puts it – the term ‘Dashboard’ originated in the automotive industry and it indicate the panel at the front where all the instruments are! I have learned something (or relearned it!) today – thank you Davide!
If you are not sure what a dashboard is, it originates from the Dashboard of a computer, where all the icons and most used programmes sit. It is the first thing you see when you turn your computer on. In a Filofax a Dashboard can be notes, stickies, an index, urgent to dos on a plastic sheet, flyleaf or divider in the front of your binder. It is the first thing you see when you open your binder.
I love this little flyleaf. I cannot remember where I got it but it is nice and strong and clear but also has a pocket and a pen loop. I use it to keep receipts and my driver’s licence in it for easy retrieval. I also put little shopping lists on post-it notes and keep paperclips clipped to the edges. Most people use the clear plastic sheets that come with Filofaxes as their dashboards but this one is multifunctional and rather attractive.
