25th January 1944: sold old watch at door

25 Tues. Cold, cloudy but clear air; very strong W. wind. Did shopping by cycle in morning; nearly got blown to a standstill facing the onslaught of the wind in Arterial Rd. Gwennie and Laurance brought meat for Dinky in afternoon. A man came to the door buying old gold, silver, etc. To my surprise he gave me 2/- for a very old and oxydised watch; he said he could make use of the parts; I didn't like to take the money of him.
