I made a decision today to stop faffing about and get right back in to the 1940s saddle.. (Day in day out I’ll be living on wartime rations with the occasional deviation when its not practically possible or someone cooks me a meal etc)…partly because after several weeks without weighing scales I bought some accurate digital ones the other day and my weight has shot back up to 20st 10 lbs (according to the new scales- jeeez I had a little cry) and secondly, on Saturday I spent a day baking several iconic wartime recipes for a photo shoot at my new house yesterday.
I won’t say too much to jinx it but maybe, just maybe, the food will appear in a very well known British newspaper in the near future. I’m very, very happy about this as it promotes simple, cheap, nutritious food and I am passionate about this as you know. My heart goes out to people who struggle financially and find it hard to feed their kids. If anything I cook on here helps a few people have a go at making a few changes and saving a few pennies, it would make me happy.
I’m still trying to get my life in order, much paperwork still to do but I’m slowly getting there and people have been so very kind. My friends Caroline, Bertie and Ben at ‘Wrappler’ especially…
And there is so much happiness in my life right now. I’m still seeing the lovely, beardy, sparkly eyed man. I’ve waited a long time to let my heart open up fully to someone again. I’ve hit the jackpot culinary wise too as this man can cook. He brought me a giant Bakewell tart he had baked, and a red rose to my house the other night and we made vegetable curry together.
Today I’m back on rations and weighed in at 20 st 10 lbs
Today my daughter and I are going to go for a late afternoon walk for an hour and enjoy the sunshine
Today I vow to see this through until I get below 200 lbs (essentially 90 lbs to lose)
Thanks for your continuing support and sharing your thoughts and experiences and recipes. I’m sorry if I haven’t responded yet to some messages but am slowly catching up following the move. You rock… xxxxx
