cravendale milk in old school milk bottle and teapot cookies (side) On a cold, biting day, making an apple crumble for the evening meal, just seems the only sensible choice.

When a cold hits, I need to curl up under my favourite quilt and watch an old movie.

Times when I can’t sleep, I end up in the kitchen drinking a cold glass of milk.

It seems that each situation has a perfect comfort, that helps to ease that moment.

If I was to offer a glass of milk to my children, as a comfort, they would turn it down flat. They prefer something added such as strawberry or chocolate. One of them refuses all together.

“What just milk?”


“OK, just a little bit and can we have the cookies to go with it?”

They found it creamier, with a nicer after-taste. There were requests to have it on a regular basis. There were requests for a top-up straight away.

I was completely surprised. Stunned.

I thought it would be left to me to drink the rest of the carton. Instead, I now have three children who have become milk drinkers. Just. Like. That. If only I’d known it was going to be so easy. So simple.

They almost forgot to eat the cookies!

I might just need a glass of cold milk myself.
