I was very interested in going back to 1905 to re-live my grandmother's life
How hard it must have been for the suffragette women to take a stand in a man's world. They were very very brave.
Miss Anson's constant alterations to her clothes
My family and my steam iron, also my radio for world news
I did like being treated like a lady
I did not like the food
Not so much washing
My grandmother Margaret 'Meg' Mitchell Dunlop left a small village in West Lothian at the age of fourteen and started working at Antrim Castle in Ireland in 1910 and came back to Scotland just before the first world war started.
She later had a very successful nursing career in Glasgow and brought up five of a family.
My grandmother's stories all came true for me and I am so grateful to my mother and my daughter for letting me take 3 months out of my 2002 life to live an Edwardian life and keeping everything going at home.
I now know how very very lucky I have been.
