If you’ve been a reader for a while you might have noticed that we like to embrace the seasons – and this autumn is no different. We’ve been thinking about what we want to have to hand for the turn of season – and shopping our own stock.

A notebook goes without saying. While summer screams for notebooks as light as possible autumn does suggest something a teeny bit sturdier – like a pair of brogues after wearing flip-flops! But we’re not quite into heavy-duty boots yet. So how about Take Note? Bonus is it’s brightly coloured enough to be found at the bottom of a bag on an overcast autumn morning.

And in addition to a notebook how about a jotter? October and November are months of lists. Winter clothing needs. Foods to buy. Celebrations to prepare for. Looks like a job for the Teatime shopping list? Plus it’s long enough not to run out of space.

I carry a stash of sticky notes with me. They’re so useful for consolidating orphan items on job lists, marking all the pages in a notebook that need referring back to, and writing reminders that will stand out. Take Note has both sticky notes and page markers between its covers.

Then finally how about the ‘Say Hello‘ selection? So that you can drop someone a little note before you write them a Christmas card.
