I took these two photos before we went to Tesco the other night. Compared to how these drawers looked over the Christmas holidays they are positively sparse now. Added to this one after our shopping trip was the white cabbage and the bag of mixed vegetables.
During wartime rationing though this amount and variety of fresh food would have been exciting to see.
Especially seeing two almost full bags of onions, they were in very short supply during the war years, and only country folk and those with their own gardens or patches of land for growing in town, would have any kind of regular supply at all. They do take up a lot of room to grow.
And I'm guessing a melon would have been unheard of!!
I brought this tube of hand cream in out of the car after trying and trying unsuccessfully to get any more out of it, as you can see once chopped in half it yielded another few days supply.
Using the chopped off top part as a lid keeps it from drying out too quickly.
A final thing ...
Did you pick up your copies of the free books offered by the Radio Times over the Christmas period, they are well worth having. The last little tokens were in last weeks edition. As you can see I got both of the Little Women books and I also the Paddington Bear one, but I can't find that anywhere on my shelves. I do get annoyed when I lose things!!
