Fri 2 Jan 1942: meat shortage
Rather cold, dull, but less mist. To South Wimbledon to buy rubber lubricant at Collins also Panshine at Woolworths, returning along rail path. Got the weekly joint of very small size, the butcher making up with corned beef. In afternoon cycled to Wimbledon to buy cat's meat.
