Goodbye 2013


Goodbye 2013

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me….an aluminium loft ladder. Well, not quite but much time was spent yesterday up said ladder juggling all the decorations back into the attic.

This year, I have done a
proper sort out and saved
only the beautiful and the

My early January job is to cut up the Christmas cards, punch with a hole and thread with ribbon (I cut these from inside the top of new clothes) for next Christmas gift tags. These are packed with gift bags and leftover wrapping paper ready for next year.

A great tip that I find super-useful is to note in my Dairy Diary, in November, everything I already have for next Christmas. This is particularly useful if I have stocked up on cards, wrap and crackers in the sales and helps to prevent double-buying.

It’s a pretty momentous week in the office for us this week as both books – the 2015 Dairy Diary and the next Dairy Cookbook go to the printer. Yes, it does seem ridiculously early but we need to check all the proofs, get hundreds of thousands (yes that many!) printed, Sets packed and books shipped here for June when we despatch samples to dairy companies and to magazines. So while we are reflecting on 2013 we are also waving goodbye to 2015!

On that note, I thought it might be nice to look back at the most popular blog recipes from last year.
