20th-21st Feb 1946: tinned treacle pud for 1/- and 4 ration points

20 Wed. Cold, fitful, cloudy but with some brilliant periods of sunshine; very rough N wind, gales of frozen snow. Got the groceries including a tinned treacle pudding for 1/- and four points. Cousin Maud came to stay the night. She has come up from Preston to have an interview at a school at Putney with a view to a position on the teaching staff there.

21 Thur. Very cold, some sunny periods after a light fall of snow in the night, driving bitter N wind. Posted a parcel to Rev. Chas. Staden. To Wimbledon to buy fish. Gwennie and Laurie called and told them about the coltsfoot flowers now coming out. Laurie has had a fall and somewhat spoilt the look of his nose and mouth. Cousin Maud called to say she has got the post of music mistress at a Putney school. She has held a similar post at Preston for a great many years.
