21st Dec 1944: making marzipan... presents... fixing radio

An R&A Challenger loudspeaker - these were manufactured
by Reproducers & Amplifiers Ltd, Wolverhampton
21 Thur. Very cold, very dismal; misty, damp: everywhere running with water. Ugh! Got the groceries as usual. Got some ginger nut biscuits to-day and some soya bean flour from the latter makes almond marzipan for covering the Xmas cake. To post-office and other shops. In afternoon to buy a tie for Dad also bought sprats at Merton. Addie Veale called in evening: I like her company. Put up a little longer indoor aerial as I could not tune in properly; I can now, and the wireless is performing well, the reproduction being nearly perfect. The Magnavox speaker unit has some slight core (cone?) resonance and is hardly as good as the R & A.
