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

The Perfect Christmas Gift

Dairy Diary Set 2014. The perfect Christmas Gift.


The Perfect Christmas Gift 

Fourteen and a half years’ ago, I started a new job. This job was a stop-gap to fill a void between an awful job in the print industry and my ‘proper’ graduate forever job.

Many training courses and hard work have resulted in that stop-gap job becoming my proper forever graduate job and I absolutely love it.

Dairy Diary 2014 with memorable date stickersI’ve always had an affection for stationery (do any girls grow out of this?) and so working on a diary is perfect for me. You may have noticed that the diary now includes a handy notes pocket and sticker sheet. Yes, another nod to my obsession with stationery, but also very popular with our customers.

Dairy Diary Set

As we’re such a small team, I get involved in almost every aspect of the business, including the Dairy Diary Set, which always features the Dairy Diary, pocket diary and other stationery bits and bobs.

Getting paid to wander around stationery
departments is not a problem for me!

This year, we have included a pen, which is comfy to hold and pleasant to write with. Several samples were returned as they had those awful scratchy nibs – not good enough for our Set!

Dairy Diary Set organiser and pocket diaryThe little book contains a notepad, post-it-note pad and page markers. I use these page markers in all my cookbooks to flag up my favourite recipes. The notepad and sticky notes are perfect for shopping list and reminders.

The Dairy Diary Set is available to buy now. You can order online <link> or over the phone 01425 463390/0845 0948128 or from your local milkman, if you have one. It’s a really affordable gift but also a rather lovely treat for yourself.

And here’s a Dairy Diary recipe to whet your appetite.

Spiced Chicken & Noodle Soup is perfect for these chilly autumnal days.

Dairy Diary Set – go on, treat yourself!

It’s my birthday this week and so I am feeling a little self indulgent – gift ideas list written and passed around and fingers crossed!

If I were unable to procure one of these gems for free (great perk of the job) this would definitely be on my list.

Dairy Diary Set

The Dairy Diary Set includes a 2011 Dairy Diary plus the much loved handbag-sized pocket diary – perfect for stashing in your bag when you’re on the move – so no missing that crucial date or appointment.

What’s more, the set also contains an attractive magnetic notepad, perfect to pop on the fridge, and a pretty pen.

The Dairy Diary Set is just £8.50
That’s only £1.75 more than the Dairy Diary on its own; making it undoubtedly the best bargain you’ll have all year.

Why not treat your loved ones – or even yourself – to a little gift that will come in handy all year round?
