Thursday… Now this is more my style- The Cabinet War Rooms or Churchill War Rooms. Not only did we get to meet the wonderful Jenny/i (!) (yesterday girl) -it was so lovely to see someone else dressed vintage, and who was also wearing the loveliest tan suede shoes (certainly put my trusty brogues to shame- but lots of walking in London calls for practicality!), but we also had a glimpse into the rooms where such important military and governmental decisions were made. Such decisions that helped change the uncertain out come of war and mould it into a future of peace, and well, normality!. It’s truly a remarkable place and a real place of intrigue at that!
The importance of work did not however mask quibbles over rationing, life went on, and one of the items that really brought the whole place to life (for me) was a part ration of sugar that was wrapped up in an envelope and hidden away in a drawer (reminds me of a knitting pattern I have- for a sugar purse to use when visiting!) we don’t know we are born these days!
