24th July 1945: sad memories of bombing... and music
24 Tues. Rather warm, lovely sunshine all day; just a little too much wind. To Cheam, bought some good cats meat there. Spent hours improving the action of the piano and succeeded in making a great improvement in its playing qualities. It is now quite sensitive and is capable of being played quietly. I enjoyed playing it to-day. To water Dear Mother’s grave in evening. It is a year ago to-day since the flying bomb fell only a few gardens away killing Mrs. Dimes, destroying 22 houses, badly damaging this house which still needs a lot of repairs. Thank God we were kept safe, and now all danger from enemy action is over.
