|Filofax Chameleon Aqua (A5)|
But not just on sale... it had a 50% discount! It was a miracle I simply couldn't ignore.
So without even thinking about it - because I knew that any amount of thought would result in something very silly called rationality, which would lead to me never owning such a thing of beauty - I logged into my bank account, increased my overdraft by fifty quid, and made the purchase. Very bad Zara.
I don't care... I don't care... I just have to have it. And now I do :) Well not quite - it still has to arrive in the post. But at least it is on its way. I'm so ridiculously happy, I almost feel bad about it, almost. I know it makes no sense, how can sane adults develop such a strange addictive obsession with these extortionate little organisers and paper inserts? Well I just don't know. All I know is that I am one of these crazy people, well and truly.
How do I know this? Well, aside from the fact that I have just spent fifty quid that technically isn't mine on a piece of stationery, I do often find myself on Ebay, browsing through the lists, hoping to spot a bargain, and suddenly I'll realise a couple of hours have gone by. Hours. Once I spent two entire hours in Paperchase deciding on paper inserts, and other bits and pieces for my personal sized organiser, when I should have been in the library studying. It was an unexpected detour, what can I say? Its not like I planned it!
Anyway, I think my recent purchase is a sign to get serious. So I have created this blog. Yes a BLOG all about Filofaxes, and paper inserts, and pens, and page-keepers, stickers, and notebooks. The beauty of it is that I have happily discovered that I am not alone. There are lots of people keeping blogs dedicated to their Filofax-addictions. Do you know what this means? It means I am not crazy. Or maybe I am. Maybe we all are.
Can't wait to get it. I will be posting lots of pics and a video when I do. Watch this space fellow Filofax and stationery junkies :)
