Monday 21st July 1941: bills, path tiles, carving
Rather cool for season but getting warmer: some delightful sunshine of the moderate sort in the afternoon. To Wimbledon in afternoon to do shopping, also to pay bills at Raynes Park shops. Started carving 14ins balsa propeller with broad blades of the paddle type with compression tips. Relayed & cemented in more mosaic tiles in front of house. Dear Madge called in evening. (Photo of tiles is not Fred's path) .
