6th July 1946: made a fishing game for kids
6 Sat. Very mild, fine sunny day, but very stiff fresh breeze. Amused the Norris’s children. I made some brightly polished sheet copper fishes – like gold fishes with rings in their noses. I also made some hooks which I tied on the end of a line attached to a long stick. The gold fish were put into a large pot of water and the children fished until they hauled one out glinting in the sunshine to their delight. To Wimbledon to buy three plain white cups at 9d ea. Also bought fish & biscuits. Saw Merton make a good score No 1 batsman made 108. Cycle ride along Sutton Common Road.
