Will try and do a few posts before then! Having a miniature meet up on Friday with Filofaxes too so that shall be blogged about on Saturday.....Might be buying a Mulberry next week too so that shall be a blogpost and a half...but yes!!!
I AM SORRY!!!!!!!
There is definitely a blog post on Wednesday 28 December! Just incase you need to know lol!
It has been very very long time since I posted! (That made as much sense as i usually do!)
Well we had a mini meet up in Brizzle this weekend and it was PROPER JOB! (More Bristolian, you will expect a lot of this throughout this post)
So i woke up just after 5am! YAY!!!! Nice and early, got ready, got to the train station, and sat down! YAY!!!!
Kate got on the Train at Plymouth! YAY!!! Was very fun and adventurous! We had lots of long discussions on the train about all things from Filofaxes to Dogs and Cats! It was a lovely train journey, was taking too long as we were so excited and we wanted to just get off and meet everyone!
We finally got to Brizzle Station and went to the toilet, there were magical mystical things in this toilet!
Now i bet you were not expecting that! I certainly wasn't therefore i had to document it with a picture!
We then waited inside the station for Tali and her husband to come! EEeeeek! Was very exciting, i feel excited just typing this, the man told us to tell her to follow the blue line, not the yellow brick road, the blue line, so they did and they found us!
We then went outside to meet Nicola in her car (which she told us it was grey so we expected silvery grey, it was blacky grey lol) we got in all excited and headed to something circus? Where we met Emma at the bridge!
We then went inside and tried to book in to NANDOS for lunch but they did not take bookings, i was going to put it under the name "FILOFAX" haha, i was so ready to do that!
So we decided to go in to House of Frazer? Was it that?? I do not quite remember, ANYWAY we went first of all to look at handbags (now this bit is for CP ;-) )
This will be mine, doesn't it suit me so much!
BEAUTIFUL is the only word i can describe it!
We went into Paperchace concession and i went mad! This is the only thing i took a photo of in there!
Yes i bought them!!!
We then went for a nice little walk in to the center of Brizzle and saw a magical stall with lots of BRISTOLIAN sayings!! Examples included:
Cuz I Iz Werf It
I waz born in Brizzle
Here is a t-shirt that Tali wanted!
We were walking past Joules the shop and i saw there was a boy there holding reindeer horns, cardboard ones to give away, so i went up to him and said "can i have some for me and my friend" he said that we have to go in the shop and browse etc... so i struck up a new bargain, just give em to us and we will stand here for a minute! (We only stayed for about 5 seconds, but i smiled at him that was all he needed LOL).
This took us to the Apple Store! YAY!!!!
We all opended up Philofaxy and Imysworld on as many iPads as we could! was Gert Lush!
Arn't i ansum!
Now here is a picture of me with each person individually!
Me and Nicola
Me and Kate
Me and Emma
There were 5 of us in total (6 if you include Tali's husband but he only ate with us, were too scary)
We then went for lunch at NANDO's I was a Nando's virgin! I had Chips, very exciting i know!
Here is our Filofax Pile!!!
I also managed to get a sneaky picture of Tali's Husband and the Filofax pile so you can all see he is actually there lol
and yes he had a Filofax with him!!!
We had a lovely lunch we all did :-) It was gert Lush!!
We decided to next go to Harvey Nichols, where there was a nasty gay man with big ears! We do not like him, but there were nice Chanel handbags which we do like!
We left Harvey Nichols after talking to this lovely gay man (he was not nice at all) and went into another shopping area, the cheap part of Bristol!
It was time for Starbucks and we didnt know how to get to it and i saw a ginger man standing there, so i went up to him and asked, he told us how to get to Costa, so i said don't make us go there we want Starbucks! In the end he directed us there, if in doubt ask a ginger man!
Whilst in Starbucks i got some sneaky pictures of Tali and J together, Tali was not too impressed!
We were about to take a group photo, i was sharing a chair with Emma, when she nudged me and i fell over!
I could not get up at all!!!
GROUP PICTURE (except Tali's Husband)
In order from Left to Right
Emma, Imy, Nicola, Tali and Kate!
Emma took some photos of the pretty Christmas lights for me!
Then it was home time after a long time spent in staples just chilling and chatting to the worker ;-)
Me and Kate waiting for the train home!
I had a brilliant day with them all!!! Thank you all so much!!! Look forward to another one!
Hello my lovely. My three ideas for blogposts are as follows:
1. How you intend on decorating your office work space for Christmas (I know you will decorate it) .
2. A blog on what all of your Filofaxes ate doing at the moment. If they aren't being used, then where are they (with pics) and the ones you are using, how you are using them.
3. A post on the day in the life of Imy. Blog every little thing you do. I.e 7am. Woke up. 7.10 made coffee. We see u do a lot during the day via twitter. I think a blog post on it would give us a proper look into what you do in a day.
I shall tell you the story of the Deco, I was sitting there and all of a sudden from the corner of the screen a email came in, 50% off (do not buy from there, Filofax) I got all excited when i saw the Deco and sold 3 Filofaxes to cover the costs!
It was beautiful looking, it said it would be with me shortly. On Monday i got a dispatch email, I was over the moon (Sharon did too, as she ordered something as well, we were both in the same boat). I waited patiently it said it would be here within 2 days so i thought it would be posted first class if anything and would get it on Tuesday......nothing came, so i thought well its not been 2 days yet so i will wait....nothing came......
I phoned the Filofax help line they told me that Royal Mail is a bit behind with post (BULLS***) so we waited another day like they said.....nothing in the post! So we commented grumpily on Filofaxes Facebook page, they told us that there was a "Technical Problem"! As you can imagine we were a bit peed off by now! (I am trying to be very nice here and not say anything too bad).
After being told all this and us being very annoyed my parcel arrived looking kicked about and had a huge hole in the parcel bag! NOT HAPPY!!!!!
Here is the packaging, i didnt upload many photos to show you but you will get the idea!
The hole looks alot smaller but when it arrive the Filofax box was sticking out!
There was like a muddy heel print on the back and lots of dirt on it as if its been kicked around in a game of foot ball!
Oh and it didn't come via Royal Mail it came via City Link, and when it said it had been posted on the Monday, on the City Link parcel it had a postage date of 30 November so on Wednesday! They really need to sort out their systems, this is getting RIDICULOUS! Therefore i pledge now that i will not buy anything off that site AGAIN! No matter if they give it away or what!
So i opended it, and oh my it was BEAUTIFUL, i looked inside, and it HIT ME (not actually like jumped out and hit me) I saw the rings were a bit bent! So first of all 2 Cuban Zips with the same problem now a Deco, which is worth £195 I know it was on half price sale but still WHERE IS THE QUALITY CONTROL!!!! I thought maybe i should send it back, but then i realised, the same problem will happen again, i will just have alot of stress and frustration and then i wont even want the Filofax!
I know that not everyone would think that is bad but the really Filofax geeks out there know that your paper will get stuck on their etc.....
So i asked my dad to fix my broken Cuban Zip as a test to see if he can straighten it up, and he managed it, so with my Deco he covered her in tissue including the rings so she doesn't get damaged and sort of managed to tidy it up a bit!
I know to most people it doesn't look too bad but really not impressed, if it doesn't get better i will send it to be repaired but then you never know how it may come back! I don't want to look at this Deco and have bad memories as its SO BEAUTIFUL!!!! I am actually in love with it! (Who needs a man haha)
Around midnight last night i decided to move in! (I went to start doing it around 11:00 but i got distracted by Family Guy and Russel Howard [is that what it is _____ good news?] , i've not watched this much TV in a while lol)
It's just really pictures from here on out!
P.s. the Malden won the poll!! But the deco kinda wins over the two!
Poor Malden :-(
It is very flexible too which i like! ;-)
I hope you enjoyed this there will be more on it at a later date!
This morning while i was on the bus i decided, I am having Starbucks this morning, just as i got off the bus i realised that all the Truro School children were walking down the road, and i didn't want to get caught behind them as they go to Starbucks in a long que and all...
Just as i got off the train there was a group of three in front of me, but they were walking fast, so i sort of put and extra ounce of effort in to get to Starbucks before them, yes i am a bitch sometimes..
As i got in to Strabucks i realised none of them were actually going in so i thought all that effort was for nothing... i was nearly at the front of the que, there was only one couple in front of me, but there is ALWAYS one who mucks everything up and means you have to wait AGES to get a drink!!
Finally i was served, I kinda nearly forgot i had to pay for it, after i asked my drink my feet started to walk away in the hope i wouldn't have to pay, seriously what was i thinking?? I think i may of lost it!!!!
But anwyay i got my drink and oh it is perfect!!!
My first Christmas cup of the year, so i documented it for you!!!
P.s. I ordered a Medium Signature Hazelnut Hot Chocolate! As its the drink with the least caffeine in it, how much caffeine is in hot chocolate?
As you all know i went to meet everyone on 19 November in London! And we shopped in Neal Street!!! I just want to show you all what i bought! Sorry it is quick, but i need to get back to work and I will NEVER do this else!!!
First thing i shall show you is my adorable Christmas card from Neal Street!!
Then down to the Shopping!!!
Day Planner, Note Paper, To-Do, Telephone Numbers
Some inserts my LOVELY friend Steph asked me to pick up! :-D
Paying for things is HARD
The BIG purchase
Scarlett Adelphi Handbag!
So that was all my purchases from the Philofaxy meet up!!!
