So I have finally reached the last two notebooks that lurk on the shelf under the coffee table.
Like the one I shared in my very first notebook post these are used for jottings mostly from when I am online- family history, book recommendations, craft ideas and how tos, the odd recipe, online course notes or tutorials- the course I did on Richard the third for example, talks I prepped for the U3A along with records of the walks I led.
So I have three notebooks with similar themes. Unlike the diary, the nature journal, my family organiser, family history memoir, everything and anything can be in them, and frankly when I looked back at them they are very random, a bit of a muddle and not really user friendly.
I have really enjoyed reading everyone’s comments on the notebooks they keep and use that these last two have made me stop and think a while. Yes it’s very good to have a notebook to hand for these random things, but no use when it comes to finding anything in them.
So a decision- I do like a decision- I need MORE notebooks- ones to transcribe these jottings into so I can find things- imagine one notebook for craft projects, ideas etc, one notebook for the family history things to follow up, one for – well I don’t know but yippee more notebooks needed!
Of course I do have more notebooks in the rest of the house- we have barely scratched the surface, but I do like the idea of being a bit more organised with the things I jot down and would like to keep/access!
So thanks to everyone for all the useful comments on the subject of notebooks they really are very helpful. Thanks as always to Katie at the Cozy Burrow for her inspiration of these posts.
Do you jot do things from the internet/tv/radio- do you go back to them and follow them up?
