At the beginning of this year, I realised that with all the things I do, I needed to be considerably more organised than I was.

These days most of my appointments live in my Google calendar, but I don’t feel like I’m properly organised unless I’ve written things down the old fashioned way, with pen and paper.

So I resurrected my Filofax.


A leaving present from my library job, I had forgotten how many sections it has, and after a few months of using it, I can’t imagine.not having all my scribbles in separate places.

I have sections for all the different things I do, a hole punch so I can keep those little scribbled reminders safe, a to do list and somewhere constant to stash my receipts.

And just to top off my happiness (simple things, no?), my little 7 inch tablet, on which I’m typing this post, fits into the pocket inside the front cover.

So I can have old and new technology keeping me organised and making me happy. And it all fits neatly in my handbag – perfection!
