15th Feb 1943: child's reading
15 Mon. Very cool, some bright sunshine but very high wind and a heavy hail shower in afternoon. Did shopping in morning also to Morden in afternoon to buy fish. Aunt Liza and Gwen called. To pay slate club in evening. Finished reading 'The Madman and The Pirate'; quite a good simple book for boys.
