9th October 1944: ...these little piggies went to market
9 Mon. Very cool, dismal, occasional drizzle. Warning at 12.50 a.m. Heard one flying in an easterly direction going further SE exploding in the distance: all clear 1.0 a.m. Two plasterers are at work upstairs to-day they are Poles, father and son, both spent four years in a concentration camp in Germany. Labourers are also knocking down plaster walls and ceiling in sitting room. Bought fish at Merton this morning. Visited Mrs. Child. Winsley’s pigs went away in a lorry to-day and darling little Nita asked me to lift her up to see the piggies in the van: she is a sunshine girl.
