It’s British Game Week this week

 

So now is the perfect time to purchase high-quality British venison for this gorgeous autumnal recipe.

Venison is low in saturated fat and high in protein and iron. In this recipe, the rich meat pairs beautifully with the fruity flavour from the blackberries, port and bramble jelly.

Perfect for your handbag – the 2021 Pocket Diary

Pocket Diary 2021

Pre-lockdown I carried around a gigantic handbag

 

It was big enough for my make-up, perfume, purse, phone, laptop, various children’s mini-games, books and pencils, Swiss army knife (bizarrely a mum’s best friend) and my Dairy Diary.

Like so many things, lockdown changed all that – I rarely wear much make-up or perfume and we go to fewer places where my children need something to entertain them, in fact, we go to fewer places full stop!

I have downsized to a cute cross-body bag, with those new ubiquitous essentials – masks and hand sanitiser.

I’m also using a Pocket Diary for jotting
down notes, appointments and reminders.

My Dairy Diary stays in the kitchen, for easy reference to recipes, family plans and with its pocket stuffed-full of crucial letters and notes that keep our lives running smoothly (most of the time: we did manage to forget a cookery lesson and wellies for feeding the chickens this week, whoops).

 

 


.

The Pocket Diary might be small, but it’s packed full of useful info and reminders

Here’s the list of contents so that you can see what’s inside (let’s hope we can actually use that holiday checklist next year!)

Personal information; Year planner 2021; Useful reminders; Holiday checklist; Overseas travel advice; Useful country information; Clothing sizes; Shoe sizes; Metric conversions; UK holidays, notable dates and clocks; Seasons and religious dates; Sunrise and sunset times; Phases of the moon; 2020 calendar; 2021 calendar; 2022 calendar; 2021 diary; Notes; Contacts; Anniversaries and birthdays; Gift list; Christmas card list; 2022 year planner.

And there’s a handy pen loop and pen, so it’s always to hand whenever you need it.

 
The perfect 2021 pocket diary
