1st-3rd Feb 1946: brolley repaired... cycle puncture... Gwennie ill

1 Feb. Fri. Rather cold becoming less so: dull, very rough. Did some more house-cleaning, washed the living-room floor. Got the usual Fri. morning provisions, also to Morden to buy a few things. To Wimbledon in afternoon to get Ciss’ umbrella from Trotts who have repaired it. Punctured back tyre on my way there and had to walk cycle back; did so along rail path. Put up the remainder of the pictures in living room.

2 Sat. Rather mild for season but the strong wind made it feel cold. Fitful clouds and heavy showers & a little intermittent sunshine. To Wimbledon along rail path: bought sprats also ammonia liquid. Dorothy Longhurst came to tea and stayed to supper. She is just demobilised from the ATS. She has not been here for some time and she seemed to enjoy herself.

3 Sun. 54 degrees but the gales made it feel cold; dull, rain all day. Quite a crowd of children called to-day. Little Gwennie has been very ill and although she is better to-day will have to go into hospital.
