Friday 14th February 1941:buds & bed

Very cool, chilly wind, but fairer than of late. The trees are budding especially elder and lilac. Bought narrow beading to repair damaged panels of Mrs. Child's bedstead at Merton. Started the repairs but the rain stopped me. Heavy enemy bomber passed over at noon. Warning from 12.6 to 12.36 p.m.: it was not fired at. Night raid at 7.35 p.m. Heavier than for some time. Two machines were fired at but one was allowed to drop bombs & a shower of incendiaries somewhere down the arterial road without a shot at it: all clear at 10.58 p.m.
