I had one of those nights last night where you wake up and just can't get back off to sleep. You know the sort I mean? Very annoying when it happens.
I kept hearing a vehicle going backwards and forwards down the rabbit warren of streets near us and was really surprised when I looked out of the window to see the rare sight of a milkman driving up and down delivering his goods. I didn't know there was much call for people having milk delivered any more with the commercially available cartons etc but obviously people still use this dying service. Supporting their local businesses which is a good thing.
We always used to have our milk delivered when we were kids. It was the done thing then because there weren't the big supermarkets or even the cartons we have now. I bet not that many kids would know what a milkman is now.
My clearest memories of having milk delivered are of waking up to bottles like this on a winters morning
and also the holes we found in the top of the silver caps due to this happening.
