26th June 1943: picnic on Wimbledon Common

26 Sat. Warm alternate sun and heavy cloud. To Wimbledon & Merton in morning; bought fish. The man put in two more glass windows in the front and painted two sashes. Ciss went with the children to their picnic on Wimbledon Common. Little Connie Freeman called too late so I had the pleasure of wheeling her on my cycle to the Common where we found the rest of the party. She is a sweet little girl and I was charmed and indeed greatly honoured to have such a privilege. Enjoyed a cycle tide in evening to Ewell; the scent of the lime trees round the Parish Church was delightful.
