Which of your Filofax Organisers have you slept with?

Yes you read that right... Which of your Filofax organisers have you slept with... or do you sleep with on a regular basis....???

The question came up at a recent Philofaxy meet up, so I quickly got out my Filofax and pen and wrote it down, because I thought why not ask our readers.... !!!! No subject is taboo here you know...

All I will say about this myself is that I can't sleep with any of my Malden's on the bed side table the aroma keeps me awake!

And before you ask I will not reveal the name of the person who asked the question!!!

  1. Not sure if this counts as I didn't plan to sleep with my Filo but on my last international flight I woke with a start drool on chin, clutching my Kendal pocket.

  2. My Osterley is on my bedside table every night without fail...not actually in my bed unless I can kick my husband out...I have thought about it!

  3. I have slept with one when it was brand new and I couldn't bare to be parted from it. I think it was my personal grey Malden.

  4. My Malden sleeps in the bed next to me!

    Partly because I'm forgetful and if I have an idea or remember something in the night; I have to write it down immediately or I'll never remember by morning!

    Also, the Malden doubles as my wallet and I live with sticky fingered teenagers!

  5. The current filofax I am using always sleeps on the bed next to me, usually on the pillow! The only time this has gone bad is when, one sleepy morning, I stretched my arm out, and I accidentally scratched my Malden with my sharp finger nails!! OOPS!!

    1. I hear you might have something nice and bright orange on your pillow soon....well done!

      I've found the answer to finger scratches on my Ochre Malden. Lick your finger and rub the scratch with the damp pad of your finger and the scratch disappears.

  6. My husband wouldnt let me...although i sure want to:) he often prises it out of my hands though because i just love holding and sniffing it (black pocket Amazona),even when I have nothing to write or consult from it.

    I did put my first one under my bed for the first couple of days(Red pocket Metropol).

  7. My red pocket Amazona is my dream diary and so is always to be found with a pen ready, next to my bedside table. So interesting to look back at the dreams which your sub- conscious is sending out to you.

  8. heh heh. I've pretty much slept with all of mine. besides the general feeling of attachment that occurs with my current "love" I'm also really Keene to a super flat/ thin FILO. the Malden flattened out within a week of sleeping with it (in my right hand, by my hip) I think the body warmth transfers a bit of something to them. plus I like to feel the transfer of energy. the first night I had the compact luxe, sleeping with it, I also had a dream about it so I kept it (initially, i was on the fence about keeping it like I seem to be with all if them anymore) I don't remember the specifics of the dream but I woke thinking. ok then. guess I'm keeping you" and it has since be my favourite model and bedmate although in the pocket form. I've recently acquired a personal Aston -I'd say about 2 weeks and that one would be nicely broken in sleep wise heh heh please forgive my iPhone post plus greetings from the undead to everyone - missed hanging out here

    1. I love this sort of attachment. We often lose this sort of thing as we grow older, and it is a bit of a gift if we can keep it alive.

  9. My elderly Ostrich sleeps on the night stand within easy reach every night, but is keen on climbing into bed with me for any and all naps.

  10. My planner goes with me everywhere I go, but they have their own place. They live in my bag or on my desktop. I'm not a morning person, so I rather don't look at my filofax when I'm hating the world for waking me up so early.

  11. My Domino in personal size and the A5 has slept in my bedside table since I got them and the Malden once in my bed just right at the side of my pillow (n.n)

  12. Both Maldens :D Considering upgrading my relationship with my personal Aston though...

  13. I chuckled when I saw the picture posted by City Organiser...

    Without a doubt the year's most important question from our favourite group. We're tweeting a pic soon...

  14. LOl, i thought i was the only one to do this :O)
    I agree with what Roanne said:
    "I love this sort of attachment. We often lose this sort of thing as we grow older, and it is a bit of a gift if we can keep it alive."
    It's almost magical :O)

  15. I don't sleep with any persay, but my personal is in my handbag which is ALWAYS on my bedside table, and my A5 is usually in front of my handbag on the bedside table. I don't think my husband would appreciate it if I put them in the actual bed. Sorry both Filofaxes are chameleons.

  16. There seem to be a lot of "coming out" here. The point raised sometime back, some people call their Filos by name, a human name actually. Therefore could their other half, spouses etc be concerned about this relationship. I must confess here I have done with a new purchase my Crimson Malden.

  17. My filo sleeps in the other room - in the office, on the desk. I've asked him many times to sleep with me, but he's offended by my husband's snoring. So the other room will have to do. ;-)

  18. I haven't slept physically with my Green Pocket Topaz, however I have had him in my dream. Dream was a long one but basically I was told I wasn't allowed to take him with me, and I burst into tears in the dream AND I awoke with tears streaming down my face in real life haha. Issues I think!

  19. Could the above revelations constitute as grounds for divorce. Sited as the other woman/man? Filofax has a lot to answer for !!!

  20. I fell asleep next to Kendal last week :)

  21. Why of course and whichever Filo I happen to be using at the time. My usual bed time routine has more to do with 'nesting' than sleeping. So its normal for me to grab my Filofax, whatever book I'm reading or my Ipad, and a cup of hot chocolate with butterscotch schnaps; snuggle down into the blankets with my favorite things around me. (Don't tell my hubby or my dog...they think they are my favorite things, lol).

  22. Mine always used to live by my PC, but due to good behaviour is now allowed occasionally into the bedroom & curls happily up on the bedside table. Unlike my cat, it doesn't try to wake me up at 5 a.m. :)

  23. I am very worried about the fickle nature of some. I think that one has to be true through all the ups and downs and all that life has to through at it.

    Steve: This post has been probably one of the best and most amusing and has brought out some very interesting in-sights to peoples personalities.

  24. My mini Domino in violet, which I use to take notes on English vocab and expressions I read or hear when I'm reading, browsing the net, or watching TV at home. I often review some of those notes before going to sleep and in several occasions I've failed to let it on the night stand before falling to sleep with it.

  25. Okay, I'll confess....I've taken Buttercup to bed with me but just as I'm falling asleep I suddenly worry that it will fall out of the bed, hit at just the right angle on the floor and ruin the rings!!! So off it goes to the night table.

  26. I will admit I have taken my personal Kendal to bed with me, I fell asleep stroking it....cos it's sooo soft...:)

  28. I rarely take a filo into my bedroom now as when I do I end up awake til silly'o' clock writing and over-thinking. I have been found before asleep on the bed (pen still in hand) surrounded by some of my babies as I had decided that I needed to do some serious planning :o)

    1. Surely that should be, 'The UPPER Hand of Philofaxy'? I'm certain a good many of us are incredibly jealous you're able to pick Steve's brain for Filo tidbits whenever you like!
