My Guilty Secret…

I have a guilty secret! There Ive said it!! My family all know it and laugh at me behind my back but I have to admit it here and get it off my chest…….. I am obsessed with stationery.

Every project, trip or holiday has to have a new folder, and the minute we even start thinking about booking a cruise it has to have its own notebook too! Bright, maybe in fuchsia or aqua, the folder will fill with everything I need to know about our plans. Tickets, bookings, printouts, articles ripped out of magazines, insurance documents, luggage tags……..FOLDER!

Itinerary, packing list, plans, scribbled notes of recommendations from friends, budget calculations, phone numbers, Idiots guide to local currencies ( I drive my husband mad….”knock off two zeros and divide in two and add a bit” …he just remembers the exchange rate but I really can’t!!)…..NOTEBOOK!

The folder eventually gets tidied up, its contents filed away or used but my little notebooks stay with me, tucked away in my bedside cabinet like a guilty secret. When the cruise they always be a lasting reminder of everything we did, I couldn’t bear to part with them, just looking at my little notebooks makes me happy!

Comment below, are you a notebook addict too?
