16th June 1945: cats' fish and sports
16 Sat. Very mild, cloudy, less wind. To Cheam but no meat or fish there. Back to Morden where I bought fish for Dinky. Bought vegetable in morning. In afternoon to Wimbledon to buy fish for Tibby and Mickey Veale. I am looking after them till Monday as Addie, her Mother and Dennis are going away for the week-end. Bought sponge cake in Merton. Saw some cricket; Merton 227 for 9: saw three sixes hit. Thence to see the Youth Clubs of the District Sports. Our Club was second. Saw Mrs. Child and Jennifer there; also Betty Sheppard. Eileen McCappin won three races, I think. Last year, three flying bombs went thundering over the ground during the sports to explode a little to northwards, but this year there was no such interference.
