16th Feb 1943: 5 mile walk to closed shops
Very cool, rough chilly N. wind... In morning to the grocers. In afternoon walked to Morden to buy cats' meat but the shop was closed so walked to Merton High Street but the animal meat shop there was also closed as were the two fish shops. Thence to Hartfield Road, Wimbledon, the meat shop there was open but had no cats' meat, but bought some fish pieces at Slaters returning home along the rail path where I met Alan Spooner. So ended a five mile walk to find food for Dinky.
