25th-26th July 1946: mixed summer weather... needed gaslight

25 Thur. Fine, warm sunny day. Rather a stiff breeze but a lovely day. To Morden to buy fish, returning via Lower Morden lake for the ride. More gardening: sow lettuce and wallflower seeds.

26 Fri. Fine, warm, sunny morning. In afternoon the sky clouded over and the temperature dropped 12 degrees. The sky became inky at times – as black as night and I had to light the gas. It rained a deluge and there was much thunder but not quite local. Cool, dull evening. Did the usual shopping in morning. Started covering fuselage of aero with tissues stained with green ink.
