People worked hard and had 2 hours’ work done in the morning before having their breakfast. The men sat around the table and when they were finished the table was hung up on the wall until the next meal. People drank out of ‘noggins’ as there were no cups. They ate oat bread and sometimes rye bread. Rabbits and hare were eaten and their meat could be eaten raw.
