Philofaxy Mini Meet-up - Liverpool
The arrangements were very last minute, but it all worked out very well. I travelled over to Liverpool on the underground train from New Brighton on the Wirral, something I've not done for I guess about 20 years.
So as I emerged from the station, the road layouts seemed familiar but the shops and shopping centres had nearly all changed from when I lived in the North West. I had a wander around on my own for an hour or so getting familiar with the city centre again.
Hannah (on the left in the picture above) had recommended a cafe in the city centre and that's where we met. We all had a light lunch and talked about all things Filofax.
Afterwards we took a stroll in to John Lewis and cast our experienced eyes of their range of organisers, it was quite a good selection, but no sign of any purple Maldens... double sighs from the two ladies! I was slightly tempted by the Holborn... but I resisted it in the end!
We also had a quick look in Paperchase and a quick scoot around TK Max, but no Filofax organisers in TK Max... wrong time of year I suspect!
I enjoyed the afternoon, thank you to Hannah and Kate for meeting me at such short notice. It was good fun.
Are there any readers near you that you could meet up with?
