Collected rather than Postie delivered.

Should provide a few hours amusement for a couple of forum members and myself!

Squidgy gaskets and a shiny new shower screen :)

Will be interested to see how you get on with the silicone gaskets as well as the IMS 200um (?) screen.

OK, it wasn’t the postie, it was a farmer in a Hilux pulling a trailer, but we’ve got new arrivals. 9 ewes and 18 lambs, black faced Leicester/ Scottish blue faced crosses. They make right racket!

awww!

But be aware that they do drink a whole lot of coffee in the mornings. Especially the black faced ones.

 

We have a bunch of Valais Blacknose populating in-laws' farm next door (currently lambing again). I can absolutely vouch for the correctness of my above statement.

Love mine, got the same grey with a light grey lid. Not going to keep anything warm for long but that's what a thermos is for, it's a really excellent little travel cup. They also now sell insulated ones I believe.

To be fair, the plastic actually does insulate quite well.

I debated between but in the end it was the volume that swung it

Yes and no! B Plus who are supposedly a distributor for La Pav had a limited run of La Pav stirrer. Now it just says BPLUS, which is fine with me. 

https://www.bplus.biz/products/the-stirrer-for-la-pavoni-machine-bplus

 

They did not have any more in production, so I hastily bought a silver one... I checked moments later and it said silver ones were sold out! So I might have bought the last one.

Didn't know they'd done some on their own brand too. Looks like gold & red are sold out too but interested in hearing how it functions as it looks simple to make something similar.

Having found a lovely cafe near where I work that sells Square Mile, I’m really enjoying their Sweet Shop blend of 2 Rwandan single origins, one natural processes Huye Mountain and I can’t remember the other. It is quite pricey but the bags are 350g. I think they do vary the blend over time. I’m getting really interesting and enjoyable results with espresso, milk based and pour over.

I’m only just learning pour over methods and theory largely from the brilliant threads on here. I never would have guessed how deep this particular rabbit hole goes!
