The Notebook That Changed My Life


Have you ever just connected with a piece of stationery? Found a particularly good listener in a 2B? Maybe a cheeky compass that was just there for you? No? Really? Are you sure? Are you lying to yourself a bit?

You’ll be pleased to know that I’ve found the nirvana of notebooks. I genuinely believe we could be best friends, he just gets me. We met last week when the husband and I popped off to the big city for a cheeky Nandos. Incidentally our very first cheeky Nandos since the UK tried to define one for the Americans.

Our eyes met across the fields of Cath Kidston florals and it was love at first sight. How do I love this notebook? Let me count the ways:


1) It allows me to rate humanity on a day to day basis. A vital factor in tracking the downfall of the human race and not committing murder on a regular basis.

2) The cover looks super stylish and denounces those who continue not to use their indicators whilst driving. Those people deserve bad bad things in life.

3) It is full to bursting with acerbic, passive aggressive quotes about people. All people.

4) It’s pocket sized and perfect for noting down those amazing blog post ideas I have whilst being a woman about town that I almost never actually write down whether I have a notebook to hand or not but there needed to be a legitimate reason to buy three notebooks in one day so…

And that’s it, I don’t need any more reasons to love it. Now if you’ll excuse me, my notebook and I need to be alone for a while.

Has a stapler ever stolen your heart?

Bought my Knock Knock notebook with my own hard earned cashola from John Lewis and found them on Amazon for you dear person because a spot of passive aggressive stationery should be on everyone’s wish list.
