It's confessional time.
I'm a little bit in love with another guy. His name's Paul. I've never seen him or spoken to him in person, but he's so wonderful to me.
This relationship's been going on for a couple of months. He's never let me down. He leaves little presents at my door. Sweet little gestures that show he cares. He makes me feel youthful, bringing back memories of when I was younger. He cares about the environment and is big on recycling and reusing.
I send him little messages over the internet at night. When I'm feeling fed up, he'll bring me Jaffa cakes the next morning. When I'm busy and can't get out, he'll bring me bread for my toast. Hell he even worries about my back and has offered to drop round big bags of compost for the veg patch.
He doesn't have the smartest car in the world, but he has a cute little float. Oh, I've given the game away now haven't I?
Ok, ok, he's my milkman. But the rest of it's all true.
I couldn't be happier with the service I've had from Milk and More. You can change or add to your order right up to 9pm the night before - I've tried it a few times and have never been let down.
You can stock up on groceries if you don't have time to get to the shops, or your child's poorly or you have a busy day.
Yes, the prices are a little higher than the supermarket, but I've found them comparable to my local convenience store - and they get delivered free of charge to your doorstep. They have over 250 daily essentials from eggs and cereal, to pet food and loo rolls.
The best thing about having a milkman? Real milk bottles! Proper glass ones that you rinse out and leave on your doorstep to be used again. Pushing your thumb into the foil top to open a fresh pint. Hearing them clink when you open the fridge door. I love it!!
We used a milkman a while ago, but I stopped. We drink organic milk and at the time the organic milk all came in plastic bottles. Cutting down on our plastic usage was one of the main reasons we wanted a milkman, and I'm pleased to say our milkman now delivers proper pints of organic semi-skimmed milk in glass bottles.
If you key in your postcode here you can find out if you can get your very own Paul (not my Paul obviously, I'm keeping him!). Best of all, if you start using Milk & More before end of May, you can get £10 off your first invoice
