8th Dec 1944: nice life... but P.O. & pub destroyed
8 Fri. Raw cold, dismal, rain most of day. To Wimbledon in morning to buy two more yards of wall border which I put up at once: the room looks nice now but I intend to finish the paintwork. Did all the usual shopping locally; got a nice half shoulder of lamb. Cleaned the windows. More shopping in afternoon. The rocket on Wed. night fell in Duke St. W.C. off Oxford St. destroying a public house and a post office. Rocket at 10.10 p.m. distant E.
