There was no fast food outlets like adorn our shopping high streets. There are dozens of these places in each town .......we did have a chippy ,. But no Chinese,curry,pizza , and coffee cafes,and a good many more of the same
We had proper shops like Home & Colonial & Maypole.........where dry groceries ,bacon butter ,cheese came from. We had butchers and green grocers and proper markets........not a supermarket in sight. Girls had cookery lessons at school ,we had a whole afternoon in a purpose built kitchen plus the annual cookery prize ..... But most of all we had mums who spent their days cooking ,and making wonderful pies and pastries who were taught by their mums.......now we eat so much processed food with heaps of additives,and are piling on the pounds.
All our excess weight we got rid of walking to school ,catching the bus was often not an option. Only the very posh had a car........Today no one wants to work as as our parents worked. We don't want to walk and exercise as we did back then. .......We all want an easy life ...With an easy life over the years we can all see the results.
P's......I am now just as bad ...!!! Although no fast food .
