Reading this and learning some of the olden day tips I have found really interesting. It has changed the way I clean my house/tidy round and even my partner has said our house is tidier. Worth read, even if just to see what used to be done back then and how it can be amended to fit in to the more modern days.

I don't know quite what I expected from the title of this book, perhaps an original wartime housewife telling us about the events of her lifestyle in the 40's. but instead it was rather like reading a book full of pamphlets. Yes I rather enjoyed reading it and would probably return to it to remind me of the odd tip but not the kind of book I would buy again.

Love this book, as I have a passion for the 40's, but it' also packed full of useful tips and ideas, and Biff obviously has a great sense of humour.

Not what I expected. I was hoping for more of a retro housewife but all she's done is incorporate the wartime tips to modern day.
