filofax

anyone who has been reading my blog for a while might remember this post about the diary i was given last christmas. it has been a bloody good diary and i have clearly overstretched its limits- i only admitted defeat a few weeks ago when half of the (bound) pages fell out. oops.
so, i needed a replacement diary, and i don't say need lightly- i can't remember anything anymore unless i write it down. i re-read that particular post and found the line about hating the filofax i'd been using the previous year. oh how wrong i was (and to be fair, it wasn't actually a filofax, just a similar organiser).



i became a little obsessed searching for a new diary and discovered a world of filofax/organisational/stationery obsessed bloggers who pretty much sold the filofax to me there and then. through the philofaxy blog, i managed to find someone selling their filofax pocket finchley, so i bit the bullet and bought it.

when it arrived, i spent a while making some of my own inserts for it (i knew all those indesign workshops at uni would come in handy!) my own tabs, and dymo-labelling as much of it as i possibly could.

and here it is! i think i've rambled on for long enough now so i'm going to let the photos do the talking :)
