1st-2nd Jan 1946: wheat flakes are back! But no pepper.
1 Jan. Tues. Very severe white frost which never really thawed all day; fairly bright and clean; bitter E wind. The three children called and saw me scraping more paper from the living room wall. To Merton in afternoon to buy fish. Letter from Rev. Chas. Staden who has now a Church at Barrow-in-Furness.
2 Wed. Severe black frost, the hoar frost seems to have evaporated. Clear, fairly bright; cruel E wind. To Eyle’s the local grocers: wheat flakes are back on the market after a long absence. Pepper is still non-obtainable. Then to R’Imand’s in Martin Way to buy fish pieces for cats. Mended a puncture in cycle tyre. Stripped more paper from the living room wall.
