Another weeks ww2 ration Menu

Well I dont know where this weeks warm weather went… Saturday we decided to make use of our local Museum and it Anglo-Saxon event. But as lunchtime approached, the skies darkened and it all got very cold. We ate our packed picnic lunch on a blanket in the louge watching films. Not quite what I had planned to get the kids outdoors.

Today on this cold, raining, windy day, the kids have been making easter posters. I bought an old roll of lining paper (bargain at 75 pence) and the kids have been crafting and colouring on it for ages. Sometimes the best toys really do come from their own imagination… and failing that, an inside out cereal box taped back together is great for making a robot 😀
