Have you ever had to go without your favourite foods because they were either too expensive or not available at all?
Can you remember rationing in Britain during and after the Second World War?
Here is a link on the subject - from the Science Museum in London
My maternal grandparents, especially my grandmother, frequently mentioned rationing. As she grew older, my grandmother Dorothy sometimes forgot that rationing had ended. She would often wonder when she would be able to have "best butter" again.
My mother can remember the end of sweet rationing in 1953 and how wonderful it was for her as a little girl. Even today, my mother can sometimes become very excited in an old fashioned sweet shop.
Perhaps I should not write about food at the moment as I am feeling hungry myself. It is time for my breakfast!
