Free For All Friday - No. 777 by Steve

'Non believers' and I don't mean in any form of religious sense...! Non believers in the sense of people that don't believe that they need to use a planner of any sort, digital or paper. 

These are the people that need prompting to do anything, but not all services we deal with remind us when things are about to expire. 

You need to be pro-active and apply before the expiry date or due date, what ever it might be. 

I come across non-believers all the time in my voluntary work, and when their applications have expired they moan that they didn't receive the reminder..... even though they might have been sent two emails before the expiry date. 

I always remind them that it is their responsibility to apply for renewal before the expiry date, I even suggest putting it in their Filofax (just to see what reaction I get!) or their phone calendar. Sadly they rarely seem to use either! 

How do these people get through life? Answers in a short comment please!!

To my believer friends that read this blog.... you are of course welcome to discuss anything else planner related. 

Have a good weekend.

Philofaxy Meet Up - London - 23rd September 2023

We held another meet up in London last Saturday that was very enjoyable. 

If you have not been to a meet up, you should make a plan to get to one. Or organise one yourself in a large town/city near by, I drew up a few years ago some simple guidelines on how to set up a simple meet up. 

I was expecting a lot more people to attend. I had 15/16 people on my list but five people emailed me before or on the day apologising for not being able to come for various reasons including illness, I was very grateful for this advanced notice. Sadly I don't know what happened to the others. 

Five of us were sat close to the entrance of the restaurant and we would have been fairly obvious given the number of organisers on the table!! Anyway what ever...

We were pleased to have David Round from William Hannah Ltd attend. David has attended before but it was great to chat with him about his products and how the new leather options are made. He had some different samples with him so we could see and feel the differences between their classic smooth leather, tumbled leather and pebbled/textured leather. 

Before we met up I had a wander in to John Lewis, their stationery department is still in the basement, but it seems to occupy less floor space than before. Also their stock of Filofax organisers was also reduced, limited to a glass cabinet, plus a small rack of inserts.  

After a few hours we all went our separate ways, but it had been an enjoyable meet up and it was great to see some familiar faces once again. 

After a day with the young Morton family on the Sunday, I boarded the Eurostar on Monday morning to be whisked back home to France. 

I hope to organise another face to face meet up sometime in early 2024. I hope a few more people will be able to attend.  Until then, there are the 'Virtual Meet Ups' on Skype with the next one this coming Sunday
