Punctuated by tragedy, with some of Ros’s family going off solemnly to war, never to return, some lost in pit disasters, the book is a poignant one and the author is always keen to focus on what they did have – the ingenuity, the imagination, rather than what they didnt – the ice cream, the bananas, the toys.Through all this standards had to be kept- a dull brass letterbox, an unscrubbed doorstep or an empty Welsh Cake tin indicated a slattern in charge of the household.

The Welsh Cake tin was at the heart of every home, dispensing comfort, hospitality and warmth during those cold years. Had Hitler invaded the valleys he would have been beaten flat by a battalion of Welsh Mams armed with fully loaded tins?Ros Gudgeon was born in Tredegar, home of Aneurin Bevan and educated at Lewis Grammar School for Girls, later training in London as a Home Economics teacher.After marrying and giving birth to two sons, the author settled in Kent where the family ran a Post Office.

Some time after her husband’s tragic death, Ros met Paul and remarried, living in Cornwall and Cyprus for over twenty five years.
