In response to The Great Rug Race Challenge

When offered a challenge what can a girl do? I am sure there must be some sort of challenge etiquette, but I’m damned if I know it.  So I shall sharpen my scissors and organise my sewing box in readiness for the rug race challenge I am about to accept. I can already hear Lyn’s frantic denim snipping so I had better get a move on.

Lyn may your needle always be threaded and as they say the only place that housework comes before sewing is in the dictionary.

I’m ready for a race and may the best gal win.

About Seren Charrington-Hollins

ABOUT SEREN-CHARRINGTON-HOLLINS Describing my work through just one job title is difficult; because my professional life sees me wear a few hats: Food Historian, period cook, broadcaster, writer and consultant. I have a great passion for social and food history and in addition to researching food history and trends I have also acted as a consultant on domestic life and changes throughout history for a number of International Companies. In addition to being regularly aired on radio stations; I have made a number of television appearances on everything from Sky News through to ITV’s Country House Sunday, Holiday of a Lifetime with Len Goodman , BBC4’s Castle’s Under Siege, BBC South Ration Book Britain; Pubs that Built Britain with Hairy Bikers and BBC 2’s Inside the Factory. Amongst other publications my work has been featured in Period Living Magazine, Telegraph, Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail and Great British Food Magazine and I write regularly for a variety of print and online publications. I am very fortunate to be able to undertake work that is also my passion and never tire of researching; recreating historical recipes and researching changing domestic patterns.
