20th October 1944: sweet ration & repair of bombed furniture
20 Fri. Rather chilly, very dull; rain all day. Got the meat and cakes and other provisions locally. Bought the weekly sweets ration. Cycled in a deluge to Merton to buy fish, thence to Morden; bought an oilstone and spade terminals at Woolworths. Also out again to grocers just before the shop shut. Nailed and glued together the front, sides and back of the hall cabinet, blown to pieces by the bomb. Warning from 5.5 to 5.30 a.m. no incident.
