After all the chocolate and Easter food over the weekend
all I wanted today was a nice cold glass of milk and biscuits. mmmm
You know I was also thinking about how much our milk has changed.
With all the talk these days about health and diet, we always drink low fat or light milk.
What seems like, not too long ago,milk came delivered on the door step in bottles ,like the ones I bought recently in the charity shop.
The milk had a few inches of cream sitting on top,which was lovely on our morning bowl of porridge.
Children received a free 1/3 pint of milk for recess at school.
There was only one type of milk, cows milk.
Now there's soy,rice,low fat,full cream U2, long life,high calcium,goats,the list goes on.
Confused? mmm I am,
just give me a glass of milk,
The bottles had silver tops, which we collected all year.
At Christmas time we threaded them onto long pieces of cotton, alternating with a cotton ball.
We draped them all over the Christmas tree.
It looked so nice and all the children got involved making them.
I wonder what kind goes into our chocolate?
My thrift find for this week
This lovely embroidered table mat.
It is embroidered with this lovely cottage garden on both ends
and crocheted around the edge, which I forgot to photograph :)
I think it is so pretty, and cost only $2
I seem to be getting a lot of $2 finds lately. lucky me.
I hope you all had a lovely blessed Easter weekend.
