This is Ruth June Bourne. I met her at @womenofyear Awards. She is 93 and was one of the women of Bletchley Park, recruited to help win World War II against the Germans. She was part of an all-female secret team pulled together by the British government and made to sign a Secrets Act confirming they wouldn’t tell a living soul about their work. She was a bomb operator and she cracked German codes. She was one of the Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRENS) who dismantled bombs wire-by-wire. She’s humble. She’s a maths whizz. She loves rhubarb and custard boiled sweets. She also found herself - despite having cracked codes and diffused bombs - unable to work post-war because there was a lack of jobs that would allow her to use her brain and raise her son. She set up a laundry in 1946 and employed women seeking part-time work. It was so successful, she soon out-earned her husband, became the main breadwinner and the pair retired early. β€œI was the first fully flexible laundromat. Yes, absolutely. But why would a country that allowed me to diffuse its bombs not make space for me as a working mother?” Why, indeed #ruthjunebourne #bletchleypark @bletchleyparkuk

Good old fashioned fun geekin' out with the fam today at Bletchley Park. Fascinating to learn about the lives and work of the genius code-breakers, particularly the incredible women. Don't think I'll be having a change of career any time soon, mind you, I was useless πŸ•΅πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€“ #bletchleypark #alanturing

Happy Saturday! Thought you all might like to see my gorgeous @magical_storyuk goodies that I bought (or was naughtily treated to by Hayley @hunnybunshandmadebracelet) when I went to Milton Keynes with Hayley & Julie @little_purple_owl_ on Thursday. First up are my rather handsome fabric reindeer. Once they'd settled in a bit, they told me their names. The corduroy one with the jingley bells is Rory. He was rather curious about Carlotta and gave her a thorough (but very careful) sniffing. The dapper chap in tartan is Sir Rodington. He seems unbothered by Rosie clambering on to his back and has already been regaling us with grand tales from reindeer history and swears he's related to royalty! 😏🦌 . The felted mouse gifted to me by Hayley has found a comfy spot in my tree (pic 2) and firmly but politely informed that that is actually a jumper DRESS and that HER name is Ivy thank you very much 🐭 Next there's the ceramic mouse twins (also from Hayley) who are now sat on my mantelpiece (pic 3). Rosie is a bit puzzled that they don't particularly say anything at all πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ . If you swipe to the last photo, you will also see the lovely wooden wreath decoration I bought at Bletchley Park back in July when we had the inaugural Wooliamgang Craft Swappers Grand Day Out on my tree 😁 Anyone else feeling festive yet? #Wooliamgang #MagicalStory #BletchleyPark #Christmas #Christmas2019 #ChristmasTree #ChristmasDecorations #RosietheMouselet #CarlottatheCactus #KnittedMouse #CrochetCactus #Reindeer #FabricReindeer #FeltedMouse #CeramicMouse

Day 7: Cottage 2. Cottage 2 was the home of the Budd Family. Robert Budd was Bletchley Park's groundsman, maintenance manager, and also ran the recreation hut. He lived with his wife Emma and children Bobby, Faye, Jean and Neville in Cottage 2 from 1940 onwards 🏑 Open the door to read Neville Budd's recollections of the Christmas parties that the family used to host at Cottage 2 πŸŽ„ Also pictured is a beautiful tapestry of Bletchley Park that was made by the Budd children in memory of their parents ❀️ #BletchleyParkAdventCalendar
