About my experience of reenacting at Kentwell Hall

It's been a long time

Since I wrote anything but the next event looms large and I feel I should write something before 1940s event at kentwell.
I am really busy at the moment getting stuff ready for the October - received today with great excitement a 1941 copy of Punch and some gorgeous lisle stockings - isn't ebay great?
Just trying to balance being a mother, working and getting ready for the event ( finishing a dress for my sister). It occured that this is something like it must have been for people during the war since they all had to juggle multiple roles - I realise that my life is easier than people during the war even though it is possible to get some sort of fellow feeling.
I have another persona for this event - as a Waaf officer and I am quite nervous about this since it's the first time I wore this uniform since I was pregnant so am hoping it all still fits!
Will post more in the next couple of days
Also got some ww2 style cakes to make as well

Matt May has his work cut out for him. He wants to elect the first woman president and the first African-American president.

I can't believe you got the Lisle stockings! I am still in a panic about my 'leg wear'!
