Duly Noted

notebook 1 editednotebook 2 edited
In this technological age it sadly seems that the era of the notebook has been left behind.
I spent much of my childhood scribbling into various 'diaries' they never lasted till more than March but looking back now they're precious glimpses into the little person I was back then.
This current notebook has been in circulation for a year or two, sometimes I've used it everyday, others I haven't touched it in months. Looking back through today though in order to snap these photos (choosing the least revealing/provocative page of course!) was hilarious. The above post was a recollection of one of my incredibly vivid dreams and thanks to the paper above I feel I can almost relive it even now. 

Such is the beauty of a notebook.

Do any of you keep one? Or do you see them as a waste of time and potential danger (hello nosy people in unguarded bedrooms)

I think I have a problem when it comes to notebooks! I have about 4 dotted around the house and ALWAYS have one in my handbag! ha ha :) life is much less stressful when you write everything down :)

Jules - Ooh putting me to shame there! x

Rachel - I completely agree! Knowing you can note it down makes any trauma seem less dramatic ha-ha xo

“I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read on the train."

Instantly thought of this Importance of Being Earnest quote when I read this =)

Steve - Oh christ that does bring back too many memories! I might start lugging this on trains with me (all those trains I get!?) xo
