21st-22nd June 1946:

Kazoos - from Wikipedia
21 Fri. Rather warm, much genial sunshine. To butchers, bakers etc. in morning. To Morden to buy cats meat. Also bought cress seed at Woolworths there and a cazoo* which I gave to Laurie: he made noises on it but is not capable of playing a tune on it: he scarce takes it out of his mouth. Painted the 26 ins fuselage in matt field green – looks really well. Covered in the centre bay of new wing with thin sheet balsa: the wing is almost ready for covering. The three children called also Ann Conley.

22 Sat. Rather warm, some hazy sunshine; genial: rain at night. To Wimbledon to buy fish also a few purchases locally. Sowed cress seed. Started to cover the new wing with white tissue. First day of Test Match. India 200 out England 135 for 4.

* Should have been spelt 'kazoo', with a k. 'A small, simple musical instrument consisting of a hollow pipe with a hole in it, over which is a thin covering that vibrates and adds a buzzing sound when the player sings or hums into the pipe. - Oxford English Dictionary.
