Mildest day this year 53 degrees; some bright sunshine but chilly wind. Bought sprats for cats. Mr. Whitbourn the cycle dealer is dead: known him for many years. Aunt Liza & Chas went to Preston to-day; so Fluffy is lonely again. Warning from 8.20 to 9.20 p.m. Single raider dropped bombs a few miles N.W. returning this way. Got a few shells but none here. Further warning from 10.47 to 11.15, gun flashes in N.E. New tenants moved into Pontifex's old house next door to-day: do not know their names as yet.
