Thursday 9th January 1941: played gramophone

Freezing hard all day. Fine; some winter sunshine. Mrs Wheals called; played the gramophone to her. Out to buy fish for cats. Saw Violet Bickerstaff. Mr Ward called to see about papering the upstairs rooms. Night raid began at 6.55 p.m. Guns and planes. Warning at 7.10 p.m. Quite a lot of bombers but nothing fell hereabouts. Very little firing by local battery. Thought we were in for an all-night raid but all clear at 2.7 a.m. on 10 Fri.
