26th August 1944: sweet relief

26 Sat. Rather warm, lovely sunny day. To butchers in morning and got my week’s meat ration, 1/2d worth of stewing lamb. Ciss already had her meat ration and took it to Bedford with her. One or two small purchases locally. To Merton to buy fish. Mrs McSheely wants us to occupy her house for a fortnight while they are away on holiday and to look after their chickens and cats: I do not feel equal to it, quite apart from the fact I know nothing about fowls. There have been no flying bombs since 7.30 a.m. yesterday morning and this is now late Sat. night.
