16th-17th May 1946: busy with post-war repairs
16 Thur. Rather cold becoming milder; very dull, but some weak sunshine later; calm. Fitted new glass to the big landscape picture in living room: put the re-polished door on the bookcase. Started sorting out the music and putting it back in the re-polished music cabinet. To Wimbledon to buy fish. Bought glue locally.
17 Fri. Rather cold, becoming mild, some bright sunny periods. The wind tends to veer SE but is still cold. Did the Fri. morning shopping locally, also bought fish, haricot beans & dried green peas at Merton. Cousin Ivy called with little Malcolm to say goodbye: she is going home to Bolton tomorrow. Started weeding the onion seedlings.
