24 Thur. Rather mild, bright sunshine all day, but the E wind blew with a constant violence all day and made it feel very cold. Bought fish and chips locally: met Vera in the shop. Bought whiting in afternoon and other things locally in afternoon. Mrs. Drake brought Jenifer here: gave her a chocolate. Finished the wing frame of diesel T.

23 Wed. Rather mild, dull, chilly wind. Got the groceries in the morning. Took some cake to Aunt Liza with some for Joey. Aunt Liza seemed a little better to-day. Did some weeding and hoeing in the garden. More work on new wing, the frame of which is nearly ready for covering.

21 Mon. Less cold, cloudy, less wind. Bought fish both locally and in Wimbledon. Fitted plug and socket attachment to new wing. Dug up and re-planted in a better position Veilchenblau rambler. Was called to Conleys to see a second-hand bike they proposed buying for Victor – not worth buying.

19 Sat. Very cold, the N wind is keen and fierce, but there was some bright sunshine in afternoon. To Merton and Wimbledon in search of cats meat. Waited 25 minutes in a queue but supplies gave out before I could get near the shop. Had to buy fish pieces which Tibby will not eat. Bought fire lighters, fish paste, dates, scouring powder, a paper and then a bunch of violets for Ciss as it is her birthday. Alb, Lily and Anthony came to tea and had a good time. We had jelly, blancmange and guavas in syrup sent by Connie Bradley from S. Africa: there was also a good birthday cake with icing on it.
