16th-17th August 1946: 22 hours of rain... tricks & pegs
16 Fri. Very cool, very dull, very windy; rain setting in during afternoon. Got the usual shopping in morning. To Morden to buy cats meat. Brought back some sticky burrs from Coombe Lane for the children. Wrote letter to Uncle Tom.
17 Sat. Very cool, dismal, windy; the rain ceased this afternoon after 22 hours in which 2½ ins fell. Repaired the moulding on two mantel-boards, it was damaged in the bombing. Gwennie & Laurie called: showed them a trick with a penny. Did some shopping locally including buying clothes pegs.
