at present I add an apostrophe at the beginning of each line in my code when making notes. Sometimes the notes are lengthy and it's a pain to add them each time.

Is there an easier way to do this?

Unfortunately not, vba does not support a multiline comment character.

However you could write out the comment across multiple lines and then select all the lines and use the comment button on the edit icon bar with code builder to add the ' to the lines all at once.

If you don't add a quote, it's going to try and syntax check it (unless you turn it off, which is not good for the code you do write), and that's really annoying.  Much more so then have to type a single character IMHO.
