Kate who blogs as The Cozy Burrow writes a post every Monday sharing her notebook. Every Monday I enjoy her post and comment on the number of notebooks I have and promising to share them. The time has come to do so.
I have a number of notebooks which live somewhere around the sofa and coffee table. I need notebooks here as this is where I read blogs and jot down useful things. This is my newest book and was gifted to me at Christmas by Miss F, who knows I need notebooks and was sure to love this one- she is right.
Page one- instructions on how to microwave poached eggs- husband’s brilliant idea- disaster- I bought a new egg poacher for the induction cooker we inherited. On the same page- five titles of sewing books to borrow from the library.
Page two- your useful suggestions for my read round Europe books- rather lost the enthusiasm for that after Crime and Punishment!
