  1. Have just discovered your lovely blog & the rationing one too. As a lover of the 1940's I have always wondered how people with families could relive the lifestyle and whether it was truly feasible! I wonder how much rebellion I would encounter if I were to try on mine :) Am looking forward to following your journey

  2. I've just discovered your blog too and its great. Good luck with your month on rations. If you haven't read it already, I can recommend reading Nella Last's wartime diary. If he'd have known about her thrifty ways with food, I think she would have been Lord Woolton's pin-up girl!!

  3. Great post, I love your blog so much <3
    Would you maybe like to follow eachother?
    Love, Anne
