Paw Prints — A5

Lochby dot-grid notebook

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

A couple of weeks ago, I reviewed the Lochby Field Journal (you can see the review here, plus Scrib waxed lyrical about it last week). This week, I'm going to have a look at the notebook that came enclosed within the Field Journal. You can buy all the different Lochby notebooks at Nero's - plaindot grid and ruled. The one that came with my Field Journal was a dot grid notebook.

Lochby Field Journal

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

As some of you might know, I'm a writer. Whenever I'm out walking, I have a notebook with me, usually an A5 or thereabouts. These notebooks get tossed in my rucksack and have to hold their own. If only there were some sturdy, lightweight cover I could put them in... one that wouldn't add much weight to the bag but which would keep all sorts of bits and bobs together, including the notebook, a pen and various other random odds and ends...

Enter the Lochby Field Journal!

Needing a splash of colour?

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

It is getting lighter in the evenings. With an eye of faith, I can see it. But about this time of year, I need a real splash of colour with my notebooks. Whereas black, or grey, or navy are just fine and dandy most of the rest of the year, when it's cold and snowy and predominantly dark, I need some zing and some zest.

Keeping track of the books I've read...

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

I read quite a lot. Not as much as many people, but in an average year, I read between 50 and 60 books, and it's becoming increasingly necessary to keep track of what I've read. Yes, I know. There are apps that can do that, but I'm not much of an app person.

I'm sure some whippersnappers reading this will be convinced of their memory's power and think that they would never forget what they've read. Hm. I was like that once. And then I got old, and 50 books a year quickly became 1000 books over a couple of decades. My memory is dulling at precisely the time it's also getting full!

What I'm currently using is a notebook to record my reading. (Anyone surprised? No. Thought not.)

Here, then, is a thoroughbred; well-groomed, reassuringly expensive and best put in skilled hands.
