19th July 1945: playing
19 Thur. Rather warm, some sunny intervals; very boisterous. Laurie came here while Doris* took Gwennie to hospital. She is quite all right and went to school this afternoon. Made Laurie a poppy show with coloured flowers inside. Made a tissue paper balloon and filled it with coal gas in the hope that it would float but it did not. Aunt Liza called in evening.
* Doris Thompson, Gwen's mother. Married Charles W Thompson in 1936. See 'Fred's Friends' list at foot of this blog. Gwen is the oldest of three children.
