Academic (Mid Year) Diaries – Now In Stock

Calling Academia! Mid-year diaries are now in store at Farrants.

Bored of a black cover? We’ve got some diaries that’ll brighten up your school year. For those that like a more muted tone, don’t worry, we’ve also got some black diaries in!

From large to small and from dark to bright, we’ve got a great range of academic year diaries to choose from.

While the boss is at lunch…

I don’t know, leave them alone for an hour and this is what the team get up to!

Come and see (and play with!) some of our exciting new range of outdoor toys and games.

Hopscotch, Paddling pools, play houses, giant Frisbees, giant 4-in-a-row and even the odd bucket and spade or two and that’s just the start of it!

You bet we’re ready for the sunny weather at Farrants!

St Paddys Day Stew

Ok, for steps 1 and 2, we’re cheating and it’s off to Waitrose to buy some ready made lamb stock but this is what we’re having for dinner tonight with the addition of some Pearl Barley to the stew and served with Soda Bread to mop up the delicious gravy. A hearty feast indeed (not to mention a decent stomach-liner for the night ahead!) Yum.

Is it Mother’s Day? What? Today?

Oh yes, yes it is. And If this is the look on your face right now, don’t panic! We’ve just opened and if your Mum is having a well-deserved lie in, you may yet save yourself.

Sneak out, run like the wind to Farrants, get a card, some chocolates and a magazine or two and you might just make it back home in time to surprise your Mum with a cup of tea in bed like nothing ever happened and you’ve been planning for months. Of course, that’s if you are old enough to go out by yourself. If you are too young to be let out on the world solo, there’s nothing for it but try to make the best card you can out of whatever you have to hand and hope for the best.

Next year though, you really must try harder and make every effort to remember that your Mum is awesome and deserves a well planned, well thought out pamper day – after all she puts up with you!

Happy Mother’s Day!
