We settled down to our bread with cheese and chutney, and dates and apples, with a few pots of lemon curd, jam, or marmalade. We really appreciated our food because we had all been war-time children, brought up amid strict rationing. None of us had seen a banana or chocolate until we were in our mid to late teens, and had been brought up on one egg and a tiny bit of cheese that was to last us whole week. Bread, along with everything else, had been strictly rationed, so Mrs B's delectable provender brought murmurs of delight."
