Is it milk per se, or lactose? You can get lactose free milk these days.
Think first, write after.

My sister had that problem and now has almond or soya milk.

At my first school there were big solid fuel stoves (Tortoise? and the milk crate was put near them to thaw out, Sometimes the ice had pushed up the cardboard tops about half an inch. we used the tops, which had a round punchhole, to make bobbles.


We still have a milkman who delivers Monday,Wednesday and Friday to the door in bottles.

None round here. I did have one 20 something years ago but he was too unreliable.

I get it delivered once a week now (with my veg box), and put most of it in the freezer. More expensive, but I think it's worth the hassle.

We had milk delivered for at least 40 years on a daily basis. They then changed to 3 times a week. We stopped several years ago-can't remember why.
Now buy a Litre every Saturday when home at Sansbury's.

I remember when we used to get it at school, and in the winter we had frozen milk, but those were the days

I appreciate my milkman so much and I'm pleased I have never stopped my deliveries. I'm unable to leave the house at the moment as I need to be with my husband so those bottles of delivered milk are a godsend at the moment.

I expect most of us remember. I think we took it for granted then, didn't know we were lucky.

Lucky?

I've always hated  fresh milk and refused to drink the milk we got at school. Of course there were children who liked it, so it was usually easy enough to get rid of it without having to resort to pouring it down the drain. Some of them might also have needed it because they weren't adequately fed at home, but I don't think there were many of those even in a school with a large slum area in its catchment area.

Milk in tea or on cereal or in custard etc is a different matter. But it's definitely one of those things that needs disguising!
