29th Jan 1945: custard freezes to become ice cream
29 Mon. Extremely frigid morning with thick hoar frost and fog; a slight thaw in afternoon. I put some custard on the ground in the garden overnight and this morning it was lovely ice cream. I opened the back door for a few moments to call Dinky and the tap froze, also water in the basins froze and the tea cloths stiffened. In afternoon I cycled to Morden to buy fish and continued along Ravensbury Road to Bishopsford Road, saw Watermeads: have never seen it in winter before. Distant rocket at 7.40 a.m. Loud rocket at 10.5 a.m. The rocket that fell in the Boro. last Monday fell on Mosers the iron merchants. The rocket at 4.5 p.m. on Sat fell at Ingrave St. Battersea.
