25th August 1944: most children have gone away
25 Fri. Very mild, much nicer to-day with some pleasant sunshine. From 7.10 to 7.30 a.m. one bomb in SE. Did the Friday morning shopping but will get my meat ration to-morrow. Gave a toffee each to Pamela Easterbrook and Nita Hart: dear little girls; it made them happy, they did not ought to be in this danger spot, most children have gone away. Went to Tolworth in afternoon. Saw some sticky-burrs growing by the roadside so gathered some for Anthony and he did so enjoy throwing them on people: he had not seen them before.
