16th Dec 1944: £1 present from Captain - & light at last!

16 Sat. Less cold than of late; a little fairer. The workmen are repairing the walls of the scullery. Cycled to Cheam to buy cats’ meat also some for Mrs. Veale’s animals. Difficult job cooking dinner with workmen about. Posted letter and a novel in French to Roy Cooper in R.A.F. in Belgium. Posted picture book and letter to Anthony. Various shopping locally. Letter, card and a £1 note from Harold Marshall, now promoted Staff Captain: something like a friend. Letter from Alb enclosing Anthony’s photo. Little Dennis Veale came in; he is charming – so is his mother. Took gas bracket from front bedroom and put it up in sitting room in place of bombed one, so we have a light at last.
