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.

World Whisky Day

World Whisky Day

Celebrating World Whisky Day, the Dairy Diary way!

Did you know?

  • Whisky or whiskey is a distilled alcoholic drink made from fermented grain mash.
  • The smoky flavour found in some types of whisky, especially true of Scotch, is due to the peat smoke used to treat the malt.
  • Whisky is most often aged in wooden casks, often made of charred white oak.
  • With a value of £4.359 billion (2017), Scotch whisky exports accounted for over 20 per cent of all UK food and drink exports.
  • Some 34 bottles of whisky are exported from Scotland every second.

Whisky in Gaelic reads ‘uisge beathe’,
which means ‘water of life’

We will be celebrating World Whisky Day in the Dairy Diary office by baking these gorgeous Dundee Marmalade Flapjacks, and making our very own  Whisky Marmalade. Absolutely delicious!
