17th April 1945: first time undressed for bed since last June

17 Tues. Rather warm; perfect sunny day. Letter from Aunt Nellie to say that Uncle Tom had had a fall and was very queer: replied. Bought stationery and stamps, also two sorts of lettuce seed and dried blood fertiliser. Sowed lettuce seed also Bees calendula seed. Turned over another part of garden and noticed a red currant bush planted earlier this year had started to grow after I had given up hope of it: started weeding onion seedlings. Waited in a queue at Station for an evening paper. Put mattresses on beds and will undress and go to bed properly to-night; first time since the flying bombs started last June.

Fred's 'bedroom' since last June
- a garden shelter such as this Anderson
