12th December 1943: folded paper boats, beaks & bellows
12 Sun. Very cold, dismal. The children called. Amused them by making folded paper toys. We loved our paper boats, bird beaks, paper bellows, etc when we were young, but few seem to know of them now. Mrs. Akroyd to tea; she brought an amusing toy for Anthony.
