10th October 1944: house repairs continue, so does bombing

10 Tues. Rather cool, thick morning mist, a little brighter in afternoon. Cycled to N. Cheam in a thick, wet mist to buy cats’ meat. Started picking out the wood from debris in Mrs. Veale’s garden and stacking it for firewood at end of garden. To butchers in afternoon thence to Wimbledon to buy a few things. The workmen are stripping the lath & plaster walls of sitting room and filling the house with white dust: the front upstairs room has had its grate put back again, it was blown out. Warning from 12.20 a.m. one distant SE, one SE, all clear 12.50 a.m. Also at 4.45 a.m. two very distant SE, all clear 5.10 a.m.
