26th Feb 1945: bought oilcloth... caught thief

26 Mon. rather cold, dull, windy morning, but some nice sunshine in afternoon. To Robbin’s furniture shop to buy 20 yds of oil-cloth; first time I have bought such a thing: shall collect it tomorrow. To local chemists; also a fruitless journey to Morden. Dug up and divided rhubarb. Little Dennis stole in while my back was turned and helped himself to a cake and ran away down the alleyway between the gardens and I had to chase him, bearing him back in my arms, triumphantly eating his stolen cake: you have to laugh! Saw an elegant twin-engined flying-boat* pass over low from N to S.
