28 July 1943: sunny leisure + sofa repairs

28 Wed. Warm, lovely sunny day. To the butcher's also to Morden to buy fish. Short ride and walk along Beverley Brook and the Common in afternoon. Finished fitting new webbing to sofa: it took 12 yards. It only needs the bottom covering in with canvas to finish the job. Received 3 valves from Chas. Staden to test.
