14th October 1944: Veale and Norris... neighbours... noiser next door
14 Sat. Very cool, cloudy, strong wind. Cycled to N. Cheam to buy cats’ meat in morning. Got the dinner as usual. In afternoon to buy a birthday card for Edie Bennett. Potted the geraniums taken from Mother’s grave. Cleared more debris from Mrs. Veale’s garden stacking up the wood at end of garden. Mrs. Norris and the six children returned from Bristol where they have been staying since the height of the bombing: it is noisier next door now. Picked a generous cooking of good runner beans. Warning from 3.30 to 4.3 a.m. no incident.
