Filofax!
Did you know that there are people out there who are mad about Filofax? That you can read posts and posts about what is in their Filofax, whether they like A5 or personal, what the relative merits of a Holborn against a Malden against a Kendal are? No, neither did I.

I have always been slightly positive about Filofaxes. Perhaps aged 18 I was an aspirational yuppie. That's when I got my first one; 1986 or 7. It was red plastic and ribbed.

Ever ever ever.  I enjoyed the versatility; you can add and take away pages, you can put in the stuff you want, it does pockets and rulers and all sorts.


From there I have always had a Filofax or a looky-likey to use as a planner. I won't say I have always used it, like most women I have been fickle and moved bet…
