27th Sept 1944: a hard day's work

27 Wed. Very rough, chilly morning, but bright sunny afternoon; heavy showers later. Warning from 3.50 to 4.5 a.m: one bomb a few miles away but not located. Got the groceries in morning, also to the butchers and other shops locally. Got a labourer to clear shavings, scraps of wood, plaster, and odd pieces of plaster-board from the upstairs rooms also the front room downstairs. I then swept up and the place looks much tidier. I then carried all Mrs. Knight’s salvage – up till now stored in our front room, upstairs in readiness for the men to board in the ceilings and walls in front downstairs room and the hall. A busy day of hard work.
