Dear Members and Visitors,

Just in case you've not seen the latest advice / guidelines regarding the Corona Virus (Covid-19), please visit the Government's website via the link below so you can be as up to date as possible.

The UK Government's Advice/Rules on Corona Virus

Also, the NHS website has a lot of useful information.

NHS Corona Virus Advice

I hope you are all following the rules in self-isolating and social-distancing. Only a fool would think they would never catch it and mix with others only to spread it further. Please do follow the guidelines and the Government's rulings.

Be safe, be healthy and be wise.

Abel & Cole milk is more expensive than Sainsbury's but tastes better. (Of course a time may come when I'll have to give up on Abel & Cole.)

Cravendale milk is a bit more expensive, and it lasts longer than others.

Our milkie comes around 4am on Wed morning and 11pm Friday night.  He leaves the milk in the porch, which is OK for the 0400 delivery even in summer.  I usually pop down to bring in the 11pm one ion hot days in summer.

I gave up door step delivery when during a very hot summer the milkman started delivering the milk about 1 am, well after I'd gone to bed. So it sat outside for over 5 hrs. Asking him to deliver in the morning fell on deaf hours. I think he enjoyed having the rest of the day off.  I now buy 4 pints at Iceland which usually lasts me well over a week.  I bought some today and the best before date is the 20th Jan. It goes straight into the fridge as soon as I get home.

One reason why I stopped getting milk delivered, the dates were practically invisible and often didn't pass the sniff test.

I've never had that problem in over 50 years of having milk delivered.

Ironically our doorstep milk delivery now has 'Use by' on the top. Fairly recent.

Though I've always done the sniff test as it varies in length of 'freshness'.  On milk with less than a week to use by I'm convinced it's been out on a round as spares and come back again!

I thought this was going to be about Morrison's

When I heard the news I looked at my bottles and was surprised to see they do say Use By and not BB. But mine go straight into the freezer after washing anyway. I only look at the dates when received.
