Opening My Ration Challenge Pack


It all suddenly got real when I got home from the Van on Tuesday night.  Waiting for me was this little parcel.


It contained my Refugee Food Rations for next week.


With a resource pack full of handy ideas, posters and recipes.


And the instruction to share ... which I did and am doing here  😃


Inside was my food for next week.

A few people have asked me how this is working out with my current 'Down to Basics Challenge'  well it is being incorporated into the middle of it.  I have still not done a full weeks shop, we have bought one or two things, the odd lettuce here and there, a loaf or two of bread and in Alan's case some milk,but we are still living from the cupboards, fridge and freezer ... although the fridge is a pretty desolate place these days.


As promised here is 'live action' of me opening my Ration Challenge parcel.  Sorry for the clicking at the start of the film, it's something my phone seems to do almost every time I record live stuff.

I will be back tomorrow with some more information about the foods I will be eating next week.

  1. Really interesting, thanks.
    You can make lentil tortillas with just lentils, water and a bit of salt and pepper. It might be worth giving them a go if you fancy. I think they're rather nice.

  5. Not really a great deal in the box. I wonder how people manage to live on so little, but then I say why do we need so very much.

    God bless.

    1. It will be interesting to see how I manage to live for the week for sure. There are a few things to add to the food in the box. I'll weigh them out and do another post later.

  6. I'm just catching up with your challenge now Sue:( It was so lovely to hear your accent it's exactly the same as my cousin who is also another Sue and she lives in Urmston. Linda xx

    1. It's a small world ... I was born in Urmston. Raised in Old Trafford but born in Urmston :-)

  7. Small world indeed Sue, I left Manchester when I was 12 first to Cheshire then to Glossop in Derbyshire where my family still live. I left the UK in 1982 and would love to return home but with my family here I would miss them too much:( I know your Mum still lives around Manchester. I lived in Inskip near Garstang back in 1975 and we are just about to embark on move 24 yikes!!! Downsizing. Sorry it's a long reply:(

    1. Fascinating reply thanks.

      I left Manchester when I was 25, moving to Barrow in Furness, then Askam in Furness with my first husband. When I left him I moved back to Barrow, meeting Alan a few years later. After that it was on to Ulverston ... also in Cumbria. And then we switched lifestyles and lived in Oxfordshire, Berkshire and then finally here in North Wales. The move to my Smaller Life has seen me going back to my favourite childhood weekend haunt just outside Garstang.

      So lots of similarities between us, I have a list somewhere of all my house moves, I think there are just a few less than you, possibly about 20.
