I know, I know, a wee bit shallow... but I am already looking for my next diary and I am wondering if anyone has any great diary they recommend? I used Moleskine in the past which is great, but I am now tempted to go back to my first love... the Filofax!

If you too have a stationary fetish and strong ideas about diaries, please share.

There was a fab thread in here once...I'll try and find it...

no you are not, I have long been a sufferer, and actually have to order stationEry as part of my job so am able to indulge it on a regular basis!

Glad the pedants got here first so I didn't need to say it smile. (e is for envelope, a is for stand).

Muji did a great A5 diary last year. I've loved my 2012 one: week to view on left, squared paper on right, pale lines, lots of space at the back for scribbling). But I bought that in the age of affluence. For 2013 I've bought an 80p exercise book, a 40p plastic cover and I've made my own...

I will try harder next time head hanging in shame

Dammit, the pedants beat me to it.

Stationery is marvellous stuff. My mum & I love new pens, notebooks, pencil cases. She's possibly more addicted than I am though.

E as in envelope, A as in car.
But me too, I loves me some stationery.

This is turning into a mnemonic/spelling thread.... what about diaries?!

HeffalumpsAndGoldenWoozles Mon 08-Oct-12 16:00:10

I love my trusty Filofax, I strayed once and regretted it.

Pens, note pads, staplers, post it notes, they all take me to my happy saddo accountant place smile

Sorry, OP, still not tackling the diary question, but I guess all you stationery-lovers have heard this radio programme?
A friend drew it to my attention knowing my passion for all things pen, paper and notebook-related.....

Leuchttrum 1917 Diaries on Amazon, had one this year, bright pink, A5 size, room for notes, LOVE LOVE LOVE IT, 2013 one already on wish list, but what colour?

I am hard core stationery fetish person, have you been the mini Stationery hall in Liberty, London? Ooooh sent me in a tizz!

carocaro Mon 08-Oct-12 17:58:49

E as in envelope and A as in car - fabm never heard that before! Think of one for diary/dairy please!

aldiwhore Mon 08-Oct-12 18:01:27

I love all things paper, and everything ever invented to compliment it... whether it's stationary or stationery. Though I have never see stationary in motion.

YANBU! Can I butt in and ask where you stationery lovers buy unruled notebooks from that are pretty, hard backed and don't cost a fortune???

You can't beat a lovely moleskine.

PoppyWearer Mon 08-Oct-12 18:03:39

I bought a Moleskine after reading about it on a thread on here.

Couldn't do it...trotted back to my trusty Filofax!

Birnamwood Mon 08-Oct-12 18:12:07

The thing about a Filofax, for me is, (and I've had them before) I feel like delboy trotter grin remember the episode when he's in the wine bar? I would do something like falling through the hatch too grin

aldiwhore Boville's do nice ones with lovely patterns and hard covers with a magnetic flip fastening. I have a few, some are too nice to write in.
