Just ordered what I hope is two months' worth of flour from Shipton Mill.
It's more expensive than rubbish flour from Lidls (which we have survived on for months, however!) but much LESS expensive than buying quality flour marked up in the shops.
IF it lasts me two months, it will have cost me about £4 a week, and that's acceptable to me.
In order to get free shipping, you do have to order at least 24kg - that's why I tried to make the spread (bread flour - ie white, wholemeal, spelt and rye - pastry flour, seeds, pasta flour) about right for two months.
We spent the morning in the garden, planting out peas, weeding garlic, planting out onions grown from seed, potting on tomatoes, and potting up some tomatoes, peppers, courgettes and so on for a customer.
Two loads of laundry washed and dried out there as well.
The weather is so absolutely beautiful, it seems almost too good to be true, long, sunny spring days, a sprinkling of rain now and then, blue skies, hazy downs, sleepy ponies in green paddocks.
Blessed beyond measure.
