Looking forward to tonight's programme.
I must admit I am more interested in the views of the women as portrayed in the programme than the tractors, machinery etc. although some of the gadgets they had intrigues me. The way they ran the home, and tried to make ends met both with the food and general shortages was in a lot of cases miraculous. Children are always hungry
I know if you lived in the country you could get your hands on more food, either by bartering or growing your own, but it must have been a nightmare for city dwellers who had no gardens.
We take so much for granted these days, almost anything you want can be bought, and most people have a good standard of living,a lthough not all.
I'm just please I didn't have to bring up my family like they did.
