The recent news headlines about giving free milk to the under fives reminded me of a favourite recent acquisition.
A child-size vintage milk bottle, measuring exactly one third of a pint. I didn't buy this to put milk in, but it has plenty of other uses - chunky little vase, pencil pot, container for my dpns, for salad dressing... and so on. Ironically, I loathe milk on its own, and although it was supplied at my primary school, I never drank it. I will happily drink it in coffee and definitely in hot chocolate, but I prefer soya milk in tea. Given the availability and choice, I also prefer my milk straight from the cow - raw and untreated.
So, any other suggested uses for my wee milk bottle?

I've been without email for most of the last week, so haven't had an opportunity yet to respond to all my lovely comments! Thank you, everyone - especially for all those lovely compliments on my post about 'The Deep' - needless to say, I was glued to iplayer, but there wasn't even a tiny glimpse of photos....maybe tomorrow's episode! I know if/when it happens, it will be fleeting...
