On the 28th February ’20 I decided, on my way in to work, to take a small detour and visit a Primark store; assuming, correctly, that it would be quiet first thing in the morning and I could look around in peace. What this normally amounts to is me buying far more than I expected; and that’s exactly what happened. Continue reading “The Great Harry Potter Haul”
I’ve been a fan of Supernatural since the beginning so when I saw this notebook, I placed my order without delay. Continue reading “The Supernatural Notebook – John Winchester’s Journal”
A while ago I was looking for a notebook suitable for testing inks that would appear as ‘Ink Of The Month’ and I tried out a few and Tomoe River came out best but the cost, for this purpose, was a little prohibitive. Continue reading “The Muji F1 & F4 Sketchbooks as ink testing books.”
A little while back I wrote a review of the Roaring Springs composition notebook entitled “The Indian Marmalade Company Is Proud To Present Dr Sheldon Cooper’s Fun With Notebooks.”
When I wrote this, I had no idea that just over two years later I would be writing Part 2 but then again at that time I didn’t know the ‘Genius & Be Smart’ notebooks existed. Continue reading “The Indian Marmalade Company Is Proud To Present Dr Sheldon Cooper’s Fun With Notebooks Part 2”

It’s fair to say that I’ve no idea what notebook, if any, was carried by Bertie Wooster but when I picked this up it occurred to me that this was just the type of notebook Bertie would have in his pocket and Jeeves would have had to confiscate to keep Bertie out of trouble with the courts, his friends or worst of all his formidable aunt Agatha.

It’s the 1st September and that means it’s the first day of term at Hogwarts and all the students are busy boarding the Hogwarts Express on Platform 9 ¾ for the journey to school. Everyone has their tickets for the train and this year I have a ticket; albeit mine has been transfigured into a notebook. Continue reading “Hogwarts Express Ticket – Notebook.”
I have long been a fan of The Author notebooks and have twice written reviews about them; in August ’18 I wrote about a black one I had bought and later at Christmas I reviewed the red festive edition.
