13th November 1944: back to an empty house
13 Mon. Cold, very dull. Bought paraffin, glass paper and putty locally. To Wimbledon to buy fish. Mrs. Hockney came back to no. 68 next door to-day: her furniture will arrive to-morrow. As there is nothing in the house we entertained her to meals here. I lit a fire for her and lent her some curtains which I put up in the living room. She cleaned some of the floors ready for tomorrow. Rocket at 5.10 a.m. in E. The rocket at 8.50 p.m. yesterday was at Victoria.
