The Postman Always Rings Twice
I think can understand now how people become shop-aholics, the thrill of ordering things and then the patient wait for the Postman to delivery your parcel. In my case one from Filofax UK.
At the weekend I sat down and created a largish order, well for me anyway, from the UK Filofax site. Their competitive shipping costs normally swings the deal for me. £0 for orders over £30 to UK addresses.
I patiently worked out the exact diary refills and year planners for my three main organisers I needed. I also ordered as you can see from the photo a few more goodies for my Pocket organiser. I have even been patient enough to take a photo before opening the packets!!
Sadly two items that arrived and not shown in the picture were the wrong items. The actual items that arrived were different by one digit in the reference numbers of the products. So I suppose it's an easy mistake to make.
However, I'm not complaining, because Filofax in UK make it very easy for you to exchange items and even supply an address label to their FreePost address for you to return the items. I've asked for the correct items (Personal two pages per week 2010 diary, and a Pocket horizontal 2010 year planner) to be despatched to me, in place of an A5 two page per week 2010 diary, and a Personal Single page per Week, plus Notes 2010 diary.
