I’m a secret Tesco stalker . . .
OK. I feel I must explain. I drop my daughter off at school at 8:40am and I start work at 9:30am. The journey from school to work takes me between 10 and 15 minutes (depending on the traffic), so I need to kill some time before I set off. I could go to work early, but that would be nonsensical and slightly insane. I could go to the staff canteen and stuff my face with a big breakfast, but that would make me fat. So, instead, I wander around the shops searching for, (amongst other things), stationery.
This week, I came upon these two little delights: a spotty/dotty storage box and some assorted adhesive coloured dots. Hence the title of this post. (Do you see what I did there? Eh?)
As you can see, the box is very colourful. I bought this to store all my (eight!) Filofaxes and their inserts because while my inserts and some of my Filofaxes are currently in a wooden Ikea drawer, I’ve run out of room and the rest are scattered around the house. The storage box came at the bargain price of £2.97.
My husband (bless him) took one look at the box and said, ‘there’s no way that’s big enough’. I was shocked. How could he possibly think that I had so many Filofaxes and inserts that I could not fit them into a 31cm X 24cm X 9.5cm box?! So I set to work to prove him wrong.

Moving on . . .
Here are my assorted adhesive coloured dots (1,200 in a pack!).
They were only 78p; what a bargain! I currently use some similar dots in my Filofax to indicate birthdays (blue) and deadlines (red). I got them from Staples but they weren’t as cheap as these little beauties. These ones come in green, navy blue, cyan blue, purple and red. The fun I will have playing with these! They’ll come in handy for Children in Need day when I can stick them all over my daughter too . . . hahaha!
