27th Dec 1944: crystals of frost & fairy cakes
27 Wed. Colder still but less fog still. The hoar-frost is so thick it is falling from the trees making patches of white crystals on the ground beneath: fortunately there is little wind or it would be beyond my endurance at any rate. Got the groceries locally also bought some herrings. Mrs. Veale brought me a piece of her Xmas cake and two fairy cakes of her own make: both were first class, the Xmas cake was exceptionally good. Fitted a cross-bar and zinc cap to a clothes post I am putting in for her.
