17th Jan 1946: love Addie's touch

17 Thur. Severe frost all day, fairly clear, driving E wind. Did some shopping locally including buying a coconut cake mixture and a 7lb bag of plaster, oh, and some buns. Replaced a broken-off piece of the organ and made a good glued joint. Cut away some plaster above where the dresser used to be and started re-plastering so as to level the surface down to that of the plaster-board put up by the workmen. Mrs. Calver called with the key of the rebuilt No. 70 she is moving in again as soon as electric light is installed. Addie Veale has papered and painted her dining room admirably and I admired her work when I went in this evening.
