Mon 15 Sept 1941: the tale of Mrs Child's table

.
"...roses and a shilling. You can always please them..."
.
Cold, very dull and overcast. Uncle Tom and Aunt Nellie called in morning. Packed them up with home grown beans, marrow and tomatoes. Also a bunch of roses and a shilling. You can always please them by giving them things.  They also took some grounsel and planting for the dicky birds. Mrs.Child called. She came to see the Council about her house in Chatsworth Avenue: she will be moving in next Monday. In afternoon I went round and she and her sister showed me the house and helped them get a large table into the dining room which was too large to go through the room door. We had to take it out the front door, down the alley way a few houses along and in through the french doors at the back. Mrs.Child had her lunch here. Did some shopping.
