Me and the Filofax

I’ve been feeling restless, looking for a diary or planner or something, for next year. Anyone who knows me, knows this is an important decision. So, it’s November and I should get a head start, right? 

But then, I realised something today… I don’t love the Filofax, I’m in love with it. I went by Magrudy’s today, looking for a simple notebook, and… I saw their display of Filofaxes. They’re actually locked up in a glass display. And normally, I don’t like calling the attendant. But this time I did. I saw this Finsbury behind the glass, and I couldn’t wait to have my hands on it. Now, it’s not something I’ve been lusting after. But I realised it’s the feel of a Filofax that I’m lusting after…. and that too a Personal.

My obsession (for lack of a better word) started with “Taking Care of Business”… I’m sure most FF lovers know this movie, but for those who don’t…please look it up. So ever since that time, I don’t know what made it something I really wanted. But only very few people will understand the feeling. The weird feeling of wanting something so simple, so basic…. yet provides so much comfort and satisfaction. 

Well, it took a long time, but I finally found kindred spirit in the blogging community. So while some people are reading this post thinking “weird!!”, some people are nodding their heads thinking “I know exactly what she means”… And I’m so thankful for that. 😊
