Tuesday 24th December 1940: cat food scarce

Christmas Eve. Cold, but not now freezing, dismal, misty, drizzle. Received Xmas card and 5/- from Dad, Alb & Lily. Did shopping in afternoon; got to get enough for the cats to last till Friday: hard enough to get anything at all. The bombs dropped last night fell in Cannon Hill Lane, Cherry Wood Close, and Monkleigh Road (cousin Harold's road). Dear Madge called.
