2nd July 1945: Dad gets mending

2 Mon. Rather cold, very dull, cold N wind, rain later, not very nice. To Morden Food Office to get emergency ration cards for Dad. Bought glue and a piece of glass locally. Dad fitted the glass in the brass clock front, it was broken by the bomb blast. Dad repaired wardrobe cabinet in his room. I bought a new brass lock for it in Wimbledon and fitted it, also a length of oak beading and oak polish. I attached the beading to the door of the cabinet and polished same, and now this article of furniture has been repaired. Gwennie and Laurie came to tea and had a lark. Two surveyors called and made a detailed report on the condition of the house.
