…but that’s another story. ☺
This story involves me converting my husband to using a filofax!!
Yes, you read that right. DH, the man who teases me mercilessly about my filofax habit, is now using a filofax!
It started with him wanting a little book to keep track of shares and I suggested that a pocket filofax with a set of A-Z indexes and lined notepaper would be perfect.
He grudgingly agreed.
I retrieved the pocket Cavendish out of The Drawer of Filofaxes and Inserts and set it up with A-Z dividers and notepaper and he was happy.
Then, our work-place decided that they would no longer provide a diary for the staff, leaving hubby searching for a small pocket-sized academic diary.
[Hmm… I think you can all see where this is going…]
I suggested an academic, week to view diary for the pocket filofax (we both work at a university). He hummed and hawed….
…and grudgingly agreed.
Then he wanted something to mark where the diary started. I offered a diary divider but he was eyeing up my Today marker in the Holborn so I found him a Today marker for the pocket from The Drawer of Filofaxes and Inserts.
Then he wanted something that lay flat as a bat. He doesn’t want to use the filofax as a wallet, so he didn’t care about the pocket along the back of the Cavendish, or the zipped pocket on the back cover, so I gave him my pocket Portland instead.
He loves it.
Well, that might be overstating it a tad and I don’t see him voraciously reading Philofaxy any time soon, but, he does see the appeal of small, leather bound organisers where you can move paper in and out and keep a diary in there.
I keep telling him it’s a slippery slope but he just laughs.
Let’s see who is sniggering in a year…
