2nd Sept 1944: rain on roofless house... bomb sites captured
2 Sat. Very cool for season; dismal, rain all day: strong wind too. The workmen could not do much to-day on account of the rain which poured through our roofless house. To butchers in morning also bought birthday cards for Ciss. In the rain to Wimbledon to buy fish, also a variable condenser at the junk shop. The war news is good to-day and that part of the French & Belgian coast from which flying bombs were launched has in part been captured or else is outflanked: there have been no warnings to-day and it is now 10.30 p.m. Cousin Len and his wife Doris called they were surprised to see the mess the house was in.
