    Dont recall any carry outs or restaurants at that time bar a few chip shops. 1 had a dine in facility(Italian)Serafini I think was the name. No Indian, No Chinese(although I think one did appear eventually)Now the town is littered with them...
    No worries, mate. That 10/15 years difference, when I was growing up and you were, would've made the difference, in terms of which foods were available. Plus, I grew up in Glasgow, so there was always a more 'happening' scene there, even in the 70s, than there was in smaller towns. However in saying that, there was a Chinese take-away in our town from the early 70s onwards, and of course my dad's chippy!

    Indeed, so you do what you have to do. My mum was the typical out-and-out housewife, so took great pride in all aspects of the role, while my dad was at work, and absolutely loved cooking and entertaining, as it was how she had been brought up, not so much the entertaining side (as that was more of a 70s/80s dinner party thing - think food in the style of Robert Carrier or Keith Floyd), but being brought up cooking fresh ingredients from scratch.

    However, you do what you have to do, based on your individual circumstances, and you seemed to have ate good home-cooked food Joe, when you were growing up, and which I'm sure tasted very nice

    Well, there were six mouths to feed on not a lot of money. Plus my dad was a dour Scotsman who couldn't be doing with any sort of what he called 'fancy food'. I liked all of it really except the liver and bacon.

    Yup, I absolutely get that. It was the opposite for me. Just the three of us, with no shortage of money, although my dad worked very hard to provide us with what we had.

    The important thing was, unlike in such situations now, your mum (or whoever else was doing the cooking back then), didn't simply open a tin or heat up some frozen chips - and *that* is what we need to get back to now with today's families: the cooking of proper, simple, home-made food, rather than lazily worshiping at the altar of 'chicken ding'!

    I think we've been here before with this conversation - what we REALLY need to get back is a situation where only one person needs to work in order to afford a reasonable standard of living. As it is, the mother (other sexes are available) has to get herself and the kids sorted in the morning, get them off to school, go do a full days work, then get home at the end of the day and sort out meals for everyone as well as keeping up with other necessary household chores. On the one hand there may be help from the other half, but then there are also after school clubs and sick kids to factor in.

    In our house Anita does not go out to work (due to health reasons), but apart from a household income which is usually the wrong side of adequate, it's an arrangement we are both happy with. I like coming in from work to a warm, tidy house with Anita in it, a meal ready for me, and even a bath done if it's been a tough day.

    Unfortunately for a lot of folk, even two incomes is barely enough

    Sure, then as I've said before, the answer to is reduce your outgoings, and the amount of material possessions you *think* you need/deserve, and have to pay for, downsize your house, drive a smaller/cheaper car, cut down on unnecessary overspending in supermarkets - WHATEVER - in order to allow you MORE TIME to eat properly!

    Quite simply, there's no way I would downgrade my eating standards, simply to live in a 'fancier'/bigger house than I needed, carrying a mortgage that I couldn't really afford, and the same would apply to a car, or holidays I went on, the latest smartphone 'must have', etc, etc, etc...

    In short, you LEARN to cut your coat according to your cloth, and lead a simpler life, concentrating instead on doing the basics right (such as eating proper, home-cooked food), as folk still managed to do in the past (as outlined by Joe), despite needing to work hard and support multiple children, rather than wasting money on 'stuff'/materialistic bullshit that you have to work ridiculous hours to pay for, and which in reality you don't really need!

    Hey, don't be shouting at me, just because you're dying for a beer Only kidding mate, you make some good points, though I feel that as 'outsiders', we are probably not qualified to comment on the nuts 'n' bolts of modern budgeting.

    By the way, I crashed my Lent last night, and made pancakes. Ingredients would have cost about 50p, as opposed to spending a couple of quid on shop bought ones. You would have been so proud

    Aye... not!

    Outsiders or not, I have plenty of friends and relatives with kids, where both parents are working full-time, yet still manage to find time to eat properly, rather than simply consuming microwaved junk food [I've been sat in their houses when it's happened], therefore that experience is largely what forms the basis for my point of view.

    Quite simply, if you *really* want to do something, you'll FIND the time (somehow) to do it - and the desire to eat properly seems to have lessened significantly in recent years, with folks these days more interested in being glued to their mobile phones, checking their social media accounts, than the cooker!

    Therefore, it's as much about managing your free time better, and making time for the most important things [eating well being one], as it is supposedly not having any free time.
