13 Sat. Rather cool, bright, fine, sunny day but stiff fresh breeze. Got the groceries as usual also to Wimbledon to buy a few things. Saw a Wainwright 4-4-0 loco at Wimbledon. Had to bail out six pailfuls of water from the shelter; this is the first time it has had water in it since it was cemented in; expect the water came through the roof.
14 Sun. Rather mild, fine, sunny day... Only Gwennie called to-day. Short walk along Bushey Road in afternoon. Started reading R. M. Ballantyne's book " The Madman and the Pirate" a Sunday School Prize of 1900, which I read then but have since forgotten.
