Paw Prints — Travellers 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!

Well, 2020 has been a shocker, hasn't it? I'm glad to see the back of it and hoping that 2021 brings better things.

Bullet journalling... or is it??

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

'Proper' bullet journalling is something I simply cannot get on with! In the 'pure' form, you have one notebook and everything goes in it. There are index pages (which are actually tables of contents, but don't get me started on that), then forward planning pages, monthly logs, daily logs, collections... and much of me can see how keeping that all in one book might be useful, but it's just not how my brain works!

You can see more on the Bullet Journal system here. And if it does work for you, then Nero sells a whole heap of notebooks that will work for it, including Bullet Journal kits by Leuchtturm.

So why doesn't it work for me?
