17 Fri. Mild, very dull morning with some feeble hazy sunshine in afternoon: cool wind. Got the usual weekend provisions, some cakes and 4 oz of sweets. Toured the district but unable to get cats meat. Watered the grave: looks well. Dug up the large pink paeony, divided and re-planted on a rich bed. Alb, Lily and Anthony came in evening, bringing some warm clothing for any who can use it.

15 Wed. Very mild, becoming fine and sunny. Got the groceries and saccharine locally and fish at Merton. Gave some campions to Mrs. Cole and Mrs. Emery: had a pleasing chat with them: Mrs. Emery – an old Raynes Parkian is very homely. Cut the lawn. Bought some sweets including chocolates at Miss Hart’s. To Cousin Len to invite them to tea on Sunday. Uncle Joe brought us some cherries.

12 Sun. Fine, rather warm, sunny day. Went to see the Pontifexes at Worcester Park and had a happy time. They are always pleased to see me. May and Iris are still unmarried and living at home. Mrs Browne and her daughter Olive called while I was there. Olive is a most beautiful and charming girl: she said she has just sat for her inter-B.Sc. exam.
