17th April 1943: heard stick of bombs
17 Sat. Warm, sunshine all day, quite like summer. Warning at 12.30 a.m., two machines reached London, the A.A. fire was very slight and no guns about here came into action - they should have done: heard stick of bombs to N.E. all clear at 1.40 p.m. In morning cycled to Wimbledon and Morden to try to but food for Dinky but failed. Cooked dinner as usual. In afternoon cycled to Merton bought some fish also runner bean seeds. Quite a lot of other errands locally. Made infusion of quassia and sprayed the roses which are infested with green fly.
