17th Jan 1945: child's "unorthodox" gift!
17 Wed. Cold; some sun in afternoon: less unpleasant than for some time. Got the groceries in morning also a birthday card each for Jean and John Child. Took same with a shilling for John. Lily and her mother called in afternoon to inquire how Ciss was. Lily saw Dennis Veale who smilingly brought me a sardine tin full of earth; his method of presentation was to empty it on the scullery floor: I greatly appreciated his kindness, even though the gesture was unorthodox.
