Boxing Day, 1942: konked-out said knocker

26 Sat. Boxing Day. Very cold, dismal, misty, yellow light. Cycled to Morden to buy cats' meat; very good of the lady assistants to serve on Boxing Day. Saw Mr. Waldon again. In afternoon cycled to Tolworth; succeeded in amusing Anthony (Uncle Fred, you're still amusing me - Editor), he has a lot of toys: stayed to tea and rode home in the dusk. Mrs Veale next door knocked just after I got back, she said their accumulator had konked-out, could I lend her one, yes, of course; she is a dear girl. Have cycled 512 miles this year! Good for me.
