30th-31st May 1946: fish and music
30 Thur. Very mild to rather warm; the wind is now SW: some pleasant sunshine. To butchers. Bought a dozen zinnias at Merton and planted them on Dear Mother’s grave. Gwennie & Laurie called when we were having dinner. I gave Gwennie a piece of my sausage meat – she liked it: children love to have a piece from off a grown-up’s plate.
31 Fri. Rather cool, cloudy, rain till late afternoon: stiff cool breeze. To butchers, bakers etc. all local shops: bought nice piece of smoked cod fillet 1/10. Played the two Beethoven Sonatas also made another rather better attempt at the Waldstein.
Note: Link to YouTube and Beethoven's Sonata No 2, Waldstein, played by Daniel Barenboim. An ambitious work!
