22nd Dec 1944: shoes 27s 2d. Addie cleans our house for Xmas
22 Fri. Raw cold, dismal brown light, misty, drizzle: most unpleasant. To butchers in morning also bakers, the newsagents and confectioners, and post-office. Bought nice spray of holly for 2/-. Dear Addie Veale called in afternoon and did some house-cleaning out of the goodness of her heart – without being asked, saying it was her Xmas present to us. To Wimbledon in afternoon bought pair of shoes 27/2. To chemists. Bought a bottle of sauce. Bought toys for Dennis Veale – a truck with some coloured bricks in it and a pretty soft cloth ball for him to play with.
