Well hello again everyone!
Yes I'm still alive! Apologies for not posting for absolutely ages. I've increased my working days to four a week instead of three, plus my hubby's been working such ridiculous hours recently that I've practically been a single working mother for the past month and a half! If there was a 'Dislike' button, I would press it...
As well as the above, I car share to work now which means I don't get time to browse the shops for stationery finds in the morning. I totally love my Filofax and its setup so I've nothing really to talk about there (although I do need to do a full set-up post at some point) and I am completely ADDICTED to reading. My Kindle is my best friend in every way. I got it in February and I've read 54 books on it since then!!! Plus a good few 'normal' books from the library as well. Holy cow! It's no wonder I'm hardly ever posting on here any more...

I've kept my eye on the blogging world recently but I've not read everything or commented at all for a while. But I finished another book last night and noticed a couple of posts on Philofaxy this morning that I felt I really must comment on, so that inspired me to come and have a chunter on my blog for a bit.
I did have a Filofax experience last week that got me a bit excited again I have to admit! One of our HR field managers came to the office as he often does and when he visits, he sits opposite me. We always have a laugh and a banter - he's quite a character! Anyway, I needed to grab something from his desk so I wandered round and what did I see??? Yes you've guessed it - A FILOFAX!!! I gasped and said, "You've got a Filofax!!!" Well, as you can imagine, he wasn't allowed to leave the office until we had had a full discussion about said Filofax. One thing that surprised me was that it was a mini. It was a Classic in a kind-of toffee/caramel/camel colour. It was stuffed to the gills like my first mini here, and all his entries were colour coded using highlighter pens! He said he'd had it for years and he loved it because it fits in his pocket and he gets his inserts automatically delivered every year. I briefly showed him my Filofax and my many tabs (those who went to the Manchester Meet-Up saw these - I'll do a set-up post soon) and we carried on chatting about how Filofaxes were generally brilliant. I sooooo wanted to take pictures, but I think he would have thought I'd lost the plot if I'd asked, so I didn't...

So, have you ever got excited when you've seen somebody you know using a Filofax??? Tell me what happened!
