11th-12th October 1946: singing cleaner taken ill
11 Fri. Cold, bright, clear sunny day, but a raging cold NE wind, Got the meat and other provisions locally, also bought smoked filletted whiting, very tasty, at Morden. Cats meat also at Morden. Wrote a letter to the Tolworth folk who are at Herne Bay. Letter from Aunt Nellie saying Uncle Tom has got the flu and will not be coming Monday as promised. Met Cousin Doris and the new baby twice to-day.
12 Sat. Cold, very dull: less wind. Mrs. Conley, who did some cleaning here yesterday afternoon was taken seriously ill at her work in Wimbledon this morning. She seemed perfectly well here and was singing as she worked.
To Morden and elsewhere to buy a cake, came back and bought one in Coombe Lane price 1/5 for two units – they are counted in bread rationing. Bought fish locally.
