How to be a young woman in 1964

Got this brilliant book from a charity shop for 50p. Thought it looked funny. Was so surprised and happy when I discovered it was illustrated by Quentin Blake.

'The object of every woman should be to do the work with the lowest amount of effort, in the minimum of time.' Ha! Love the early Blake illustrations, though.

I always wanted to know the correct way to lay out my fridge.

And I was genuinely pleased to know how to lay the table correctly. Those of you who read this blog often, know my new years resolution was to 'set tables and trays nicely'. And I'm obsessed with keeping them.
