18th-19th October 1945: "I am 57 today and feel 107"

18 Thur. Cool, dull, slight rain. I am 57 to-day and feel 107. Anthony sent me a birthday card. Did a little shopping locally in morning. Made another effort to scrap the old spring mattress – heavy going. Gwennie and Laurie called. Gave Laurie 1s 6d as his birthday was last week but he was at Oxford then.

19 Fri. Cold at each end of day but fine and bright throughout; the sun temperature rising to 91 degs. in afternoon. Got the week-end joint and all the usual Fri. morning shopping locally: bought a large cabbage for Aunt Liza. To Morden in afternoon to buy fish. A letter from Alan Spooner who is in the army at Maidstone.
