(Food Critic - Matthew Fort asleep July 2009 Inverness Airport)
On Christmas Eve I found myself in Staples before going to the cinema to watch the Hobbit. To some people this is strange... Christmas Eve looking at office supplies?
I will admit, loud and proud that I have a note book problem. And a nice pen problem. I don't really ever use them. But I stash them. I normally use one on each of my holidays. Especially when sailing.
I note down all the places visited, how much it cost to get in, marks out of ten etc Then at the back of the book upside down I list all the food and drink eaten that day and the prices. I also mark the food out of 10. Restaurant critic I am not, but I still do it. Half the time I am not even sure where I put the book after, it whittles the hours away when on a sun lounger and keeps tabs on my spending.
I am secretly hankering after the Martha Stewart range I saw. I feel compelled and am talking my inner self into the need for the emergency number wipe board. Why? I have no idea. Do you have any stationery secrets?
