Get Organised Day - win a Dairy Diary *Now closed & winner announced in the comments*

The second day of National Stationery Week is Get Organised Day which is right up my street!  If you need something to help you get organised then a diary is a great place to start!

When I went to the Spring Fair I met Emily from Dairy Diary and we had a nice chat about National Stationery Week and her range of diaries and books, she very kindly gave me a couple of diaries to give away for today so let me tell you about them!


Dairy Diary

The Dairy Diary was first sold in 1982 by your friendly local milkman, since then the diary has become one of the UK's best selling home diaries having sold more than 30 million copies!  


Dairy Diary 2016

The diary comes with a handy set of stickers and a storage pocket to keep your bits and pieces safe.


Handy pocket & stickers

It has a week on two pages layout which incorporates a yummy recipe for you to try as well!  I have to admit I love reading recipe books so I like the idea of a weekly recipe to drool over!

Kitchen & Home Diary

The second diary Emily gave me is the Kitchen & Home Diary.  It is an A5 size diary which focuses on household ideas, hint and tips and cookery.

This diary also has a storage pocket in the front and a coordinating ribbon page marker.

If you have a green thumb or just fancy giving it a go there is a fab article on how to grow your own fruit.  From getting started to maintenance, there is lots of helpful information.

Grow your own fruit

It has the same layout as the Dairy Diary including the weekly recipe to tickle your fancy.

  2. Growing up my mum would often get a Dairy Diary (even though she had her very loved Filofax!). I loved them. I would love either of them. I'll have to see if mum can still order them from her milkman!

  7. I would love the Dairy Diary please. I remember my mum had one when I was a child and we used to try the recipes every week. It would be lovely to carry on the same tradition with my 8 year old daughter.

  14. Would love a Dairy Diary. Bought one for my mum every year from the start until she died at which time my children bought me one until they married and left home. The recipes all work and have been used many times. The best diary ever.
