26th Sept 1944: pickled shallots and a cup of tea

26 Tues. Very chilly, rough morning, but fine sunny afternoon, but the sun has little warmth in it now. To N. Cheam to buy some good cats’ meat. To Morden in afternoon to buy a paper. Mr. Sears brought some gifts from the Harvest Festival including a large loaf and some fruit and vegetables, also a 1/2lb. tin of cocoa and a jar of pickled shallots. The minister said the gifts should be distributed to people who were bombed out. Mr Honor called, so I gave him a cup of tea and some cake.
