6-8 Jan '46: music, cycling, aircraft and girls
6 Sun. Mild for Jan, 50 degs, dull. A crowd of children called to-day. Ciss went to Tolworth. Played Beethoven Sonatas. Did not go out.
7 Mon. Rather cold, becoming milder, fine sunny afternoon; calm, pleasant. Fitted new brake cable in handle bar of cycle; it will need the slack taken up after a little use. To Wimbledon in afternoon to buy fish also bought solder at Woolworths. Paid the Slate Club.
8 Tues. Rather cold, becoming milder, dull, rain most of the day. To Smith’s Merton to buy more cycle brake cable. Listened to a gramophone record in the shop, it was a musical switch, one having to guess the pieces which I did accurately, the answers being given on the reverse of the record. A lovely auburn-haired girl served me and she pleased me very much. Fitted the remaining piece of cable to operate the back brake so that all the wires are now new and I feel safe. To Morden to buy fish. Saw a Junkers transport fly over; a captured German plane seemingly.
