13th July 1945: butter beans, biscuits & fish... and a funeral
13 Fri. Rather warm, fine, bright sunny day, but a boisterous E wind. Did all the usual shopping in the morning. Mrs. Conley obliged us again by doing some house cleaning. To Wimbledon to buy fish thence to Woolworths to buy biscuits: oh, I bought butter beans at Faulkner’s. Aunt Liza came to tea. Mr Akhurst called to see Dad. Betty Sheppard called to see Ciss. Dear Gwennie brought some fish for Dinky. Dug up the shallots: I planted 36 bulbs and harvested 7½ lbs. Ciss went to the funeral of Mrs Wheals, and so a loved one passes on.
