September 1943 war had just be declared children have started to be evacuated from the major cites.
I wonder how much storing of food would have taken place, knowing rationing will go on for another 14 years seems an almost impossible way of life, but for the people of Britain in sept 1939 believed the war would all be over by Christmas . It’s going to be hard to live day by day and not look into the future that we know. I have a terrible urge to go out and bulk buy sugar .
Today I made jam blackberry and apples, the good weather has given us bumper crop of apples and the hedge rows are full of black berries, of course no rationing yet so had plenty of sugar to make the Jam.
