22-23 Sept 1945: Baa, Baa, Black Sheep

22 Sat. Very cool, rainy, dull morning, bright sunny afternoon but the sunshine is autumnal now; nasty cold boisterous wind. To Cheam to buy some nice cats meat; and there was only a short queue. Cycled to Tolworth in afternoon but not to see Alb as they have all gone to Herne Bay* for a holiday, including Dad. Bought some heel-grips for Ciss’ shoes at Woolworths at Tolworth. Aunt Liza called and brought a pear. Wound a tapped coil for a new crystal set for Uncle Tom.

23 Sun. Very cool, bright sunny day, rough chilly wind. Connie Freeman called and sang Baa, Baa, Black Sheep to me. Walk along rail path in afternoon: saw three Pacifics and No. 838 a large 4.6.0 mixed traffic engine came and stood in Wimbledon yard. Mrs Akroyd came to tea.

The holiday was in a rented bungalow at 3, Cobblers Bridge Road. (Photo: Google Street View)
