Useful Reminders

Dairy Diary useful reminders and planners

Dairy Diary is full of useful reminders

Of course, we begin with the notes pocket in which we can secrete all those need-to-know bits and bobs. There’s also the sticker sheet, which reminds of birthdays, anniversaries, appointments and renewals.

Year planners are handy for at-a-glance appointments and the Useful Reminders page provides a list for various numbers and renewal dates.

Family & Friends pages are really handy for reminders of addresses and telephone numbers, as well as emails. Then, we also have the Budgeting pages, which help us to keep track of income and expenditure.

Dairy Diary 2021 – A5 week-to-view diaryOn the diary pages, there are notes of phases of the moon, holidays and celebrations as well as a reminder to buy your next diary. Which reminds me, have you bought yours yet?

The 2021 edition is on sale now for just £8.85!

Why not order for family and friends this Christmas and enjoy FREE DELIVERY on orders over £20.

Top 5 Halloween Recipes

Tarantula Truffles

Halloween fun at home

 

Halloween is often assumed to have traversed the Atlantic from the US, but in the UK the origins of Halloween can be traced back to the ancient Celts. For more information read  When Is Halloween?

The celebration has morphed many times over thousands of years, and it will certainly be different again this year.

Trick or treating seems highly unlikely (I can’t say I’ll miss it!) and so it makes sense to make a bit of an occasion of Halloween at home.

Carve pumpkins, light some candles and indulge in some of these delicious treats (tricks optional).

BRAND NEW by popular demand

Dairy Diary Wall Planner

Dairy Diary Wall Planner

 

Over the years, I have spoken to hundreds, possibly thousands of people who are desperate to get hold of the Dairy Diary Year Planner that they once had from the milkman.

Literally hundreds of thousands of people plan their lives by this planner – I’ve seen it hung on the wall in many kitchens.

It may only be a humble sheet of card, with 6 months to view each side, but it’s treasured as a vital part of daily life. As such, instead of only supplying milkmen (and women), we now sell wall planners to everyone.

You can buy a pack of two for just £2.00.

Happy Houseplants

Caring for houseplants

I cannot tell you how many plants have suffered at my hand over the years.

 

A green thumb is not a quality I am known for!

Even my succulents have not survived longer than a month, which are meant to be hardy plants…

When I discovered that in the 2021 Dairy Diary, we were to have a feature all about house plants, I was very happy indeed.

Especially as it includes ‘tips for beginners’ and a list of starter house plants that can deal with a degree of neglect, so are great for those new to indoor greenery!

If you have any other tips on how to become the next Titchmarsh, let me know in the comments below?

Recipe of the Week: Toffee Apple Crumble

Toffee Apple Crumble

Crumble Night

 

‘Crumble Night’ was an almost weekly event with my university flatmates and me, where we took turns to make our favourite pud to share.

It was a love we all had in common, helping to form our friendships for the next three years and beyond.

Whilst it may not be all that great for the waistline to enjoy every day, crumble reminds me of those autumnal evenings and brings a smile to my face.

I may have to resurrect this tasty tradition in our house!

Toffee Apple Crumble, a gorgeous recipe from the 2021 Dairy Diary is the perfect way to begin the season, now that the nights are growing darker and the golden leaves start to fall.

Best served with custard or cream of course!
