So, if you're wondering - I've moved out!
After a lot of soul searching, I have decided that the Collins Debden life is not for me and I am now fully moved in to an A5 Filofax.
This is for real.
I ummmmmed and aaaahed for a couple of months and really was very torn between the two version of organizers.
I have to admit I really REALLY REALLY did love my Collins Debden.
I have had it for so many years.
It has served me well.
It was comfortable.
But then I did something really dangerous.
I got a new filofax.
A new, boxed, leather-smelling, perfect-ringed, fully embossed Filofax.
That one small act sealed my fate.
And then a funny thing happened.
I got another.
and another, another, another . . . . . .
they are all A5 or Personal size.
A variety of different types that I think I like.
They sit on my desk in a row, all competing to be "the one"
"Pick me! Pick me!" I hear them cry out at me.
I have not made the final selection.
I DO know I am a ONE FILOFAX kind of guy.
I tried the dual binder thing - too complicated.
But which one?
A5 or Personal?
The colour is easy - black or tan. No problems there.
I have given myself until the end of July 2013 to make the final decision.
I am still after the elusive A5 Balmoral - one day I will get you my pretty.
I think the Balmoral is my ultimate binder.
But I need to buy one first.
I will need to hold it and carry it and use it before I really truly know.
I have never seen one in the flesh.
Am I indecisive? I am not sure!
My plan is to get the whole range of binders and associated stationery and make a choice.
A choice for the long term.
Choose my ONE and ONLY binder,
and sell off the rest.
Well that's my plan.
It's a good plan right?
Test the waters and make my selection.
I'll let you know.
My heart tells me, when I see it I will know.
In the mean time - I am fully moved into one of the A5 binders.
It feels good.
well, that's a start!
