12th August 1944: a busy day... oh yes, and a couple of bombs

12 Sat. Cool dull morning, fine warm sunny afternoon; nice sunset. To greengrocers in morning to buy cabbage and carrots. To Morden in afternoon to buy fish also bought a birthday card for Dad. Thence to Wimbledon and bought a good quality cup and saucer (very rare) and a shaving stick for Dad. Made a rough ventilated box for Mr. Hockney to take Tibby to Maidstone in. A man who came to recover some articles from the ruined No 74 accepted a cup of tea and some cake. Warning at 11.5 p.m. two down in SE, all clear 7.0 a.m. on 13 Sun.
