So here we go my first post. I have been thinking how life seems to go round and round. I was born in the middle of the second world war so as I grew up austerity was the norm for me, this was because nobody had a lot of money and it would seem not a lot was available or it was rationed. With everyone in blogland seemingly trying to be more frugal today's post is my take on this.
So as well as being frugal with food, woollen jumpers were unravelled, material re-used (a man's shirt made a lovely sundress or baby dress) shoes were mended. My mother-in-law now 93 yrs old remembers how she bought rags from the ragman washed unpicked and remade into little rag dolls which she then sold to the village shop for others to buy as Christmas and Birthday Presents. So begins the merry go round!!
