Filofax update.

Soooo it's been a hectic week!
Moved out of one house at Uni, and into another, had to go back to clean the old one, including the carpets, and had to resit an exam to keep me in Vet School.
Luckily my filo kept me sane and organised and severly reduced stress by giving me a list of cleaning jobs, times cleaning equipment was rented and needed to be returned, memory jogging notes, and of course essential exam details from our online system. - Very handy for the paranoid student who NEEDS to check when and where the exam is, about 10 times a day for the 3 days prior to the exam.

I did find a grey Urban mini, A5 graphics in red and black in TK maxx recently at hugely reduced prices - so have a look if you're after a new filo. I personally resisted. (student budget and bigger plans)

I've also changed my opinion of the Butterfly. It's no longer my dream filo. I saw both the pewter and the red in Paperchase in Nottingham and it's just missing something.... The detailing and the way the butterflies are done looks quite different in real life to the product photo's on FIlofax UK website. Hmmmm Finsbury perhaps.

So for the plans:
I still need to find a job for Logic, and with a trip to London on the cards, a visit to the Filofax shop might just give the inspiration I need.... Although I am currently trying to resist the charms of the aqua and purple finsbury.....
I also want to try using more colour, but I really don't want to use one of the four colour bic roller balls. A trip to paperchase and a cute slim pencil case maybe in order....

And that's about all for now folks!

  1. I agree about the Butterfly. It is not available in the U.S. and I had gotten excited by the pictures on the U.K. website since we were traveling to London soon. What a disappointment when I saw and handled it in person. But I fell in love with the Finchley, which I had dismissed from the photos. Can't judge a filo from its picture!
