Cahier (pronounced ka yay) is originally a French word meaning notebook.
I notice that Moleskine has a range of notebooks called cahier. It is kind of cheating when you brand something with the right word for it anyway. It is a bit like Nokia bringing out a new mobile phone called ‘phone’.
It is an appropriate word for me today as I made the mistake of going into the Smiggle shop when I was at Eastland shops today. I managed to get out with only minimal damage to the wallet but I should know better than to go in there. It was lucky the boys weren’t with me as the new alien/robot range they have would have really got them going!
