multi pagination page

Using writer, we have composed a personal favorites cook book. The actual pages go in a small format page (8.5 high by 5.5 wide), so we cut the landscape style paper in half and use two columns.

It would be super to be able to auto-number the pages. Right now, I construct a text block at the bottom of each page in the footer (two per page) and hand number the pages. Of course, these text frames have a habit of moving on their own and the hand numbering is kind of archaic.

Does anyone have a clever way to mark page numbers on a page where the page is actually the column, so page 2 contains pages 3 and 4.
