Rather cold, very dull, misty and damp. To grocers to buy jam, salmon and meat loaf. All rationed goods. Thence to Wimbledon; bought sprats and a soup bowl and saucer for a present for Ciss. Met Mrs Conrade and Joan in Wimbledon. Mrs.Kingham told me her sister has just died, she is dear little Violet's mother: it will be a sad Christmas for many.
