28th-29th Jan 1946: getting plastered
28 Mon. Rather cold. Fine sunny day but chilly wind. To Morden cats meat shop in morning. Post letter to Capt Marshall who is in Germany. Got accumulators. More work plastering holes and cracks in living room walls. There are so many it is taking a long while to prepare the walls for the distemper but it is nearly done now.
29 Tues. rather cold, dull, very windy, rain. To Merton to buy fish pieces for Dinky. Bought a jar of delicious smoked roe fish paste and a few other things at the grocers. White-washed the living room ceiling in afternoon: it looks really splendid and far better than the ceiling of the sitting room, the new plaster being of far better quality.
