Living on Rations - Week Four - Day 24


It was a lazy morning in our house, breakfast was a slow affair, toast and coffee ... lots of coffee. 

Will the ration last the week, I really don't know but I needed coffee.  The furry children watched and snoozed until it was time for a walk around the paddock and then an hour later, a walk around Llanrwst with Mum.

They're happy now that the snow has gone.


Lunch was delicious, homemade soup and some bread rolls from the freezer.


I might have bought a couple of books from Amazon.  Just used ones at silly low prices, plus postage, but I really fancied them.  Browsing Amazon is dangerous when it knows the type of books I like and gives me 'recommendations' ... naughty Amazon ... I love you  :-)


Look at the pages in this one.


The start of each chapter is a work of art.


But I'll have to read it carefully, although the description was fair and true it is an old book and if I'm as rough as I usually am slouched in my bed at night, it will be a pile of pages in my hands before I have finished reading it. 

Worth every penny though ... it cost me 1p  ;-)

We went to the cinema at teatime and being honest were going to pick up a Chinese takeaway on the way back .. but it was closed, so we came home and made some Cheese and Green Tomato Chutney  buns to have with our coffee.  I was glad, and they were tasty ... although unfortunately I didn't take a photo.

I'm getting slapdash ... I'm calling it food fatigue.  When this week is over I think I'll be living on Pot Noodles for a week!!

  1. Food fatigue is definitely a thing so I suppose it's not surprising, especially when it's pretty restrictive as it is for you at the moment. I'm glad you couldn't get the take away too!
    You can do it!

  2. Lovely illustrations! Do you think the author is the same Alison Uttley who wrote the Little Grey Rabbit stories?

  3. I bought the Good Eating one, I didn't think it was quite so good as some of the others before, recipes from an old farmhouse looks/sounds like a book for me. Amazon is very addictive, my wish list grows by the day, I love it when you can find a good book for £2.81 inc postage.

  6. I would have had food fatigue way before you. You have done very well.

    God bless.

  7. I love the look of your new book. I have to stay off Amazon books, Ebay too, as they are just too tempting and I am trying to reduce the amount of books I have. Not easy at all.

  8. Oh my goodness.......you usually start with a picture of what you have eaten. I feared for the furry onlookers for a moment!

  9. Love the pictures from the cookbook. My first thought was those would make lovely framed pictures in the kitchen. Now, I want to look for something similar to have the artwork. Casey

  10. You're killing me Sue. I'm a book addict and so many of the books you have talked about have looked so good Amazon is doing a roaring trade with me right now. I loved Alison Uttley as a child, Little grey rabbit and Fuzzypeg the hedgehog were favorites of mine. So of course I jumped straight online and ordered this one too. Can't wait for it to arrive.

  11. I was wondering if people who lived in the country would have gotten different ration amounts than those in the city, and if they were expected to grow some of their own food?
