11th-12th Sept 1946: blue-eyed girls

11 Wed. Cool, very dull & cloudy, windy. Got the groceries at Eyles. Waved to Winifred Owens who looks out of her window for me. To Morden to buy fish and to enquire the time of a Green Line* coach to Luton. Saw the dear auburn-haired, blue-eyed girl who serves at Perrins music shop: spoke to her when I bought my book of Beethoven Sonatas last year. Walked through Kendor Gardens.

12 Thur. Cool morning, very dull but some pleasant sunshine in late afternoon. To butchers and fish shop in morning. Also to stationers in Coombe Lane to buy three rubber ink sacs to replace worn out ones in fountain pens. Fitted same to pens with good results. To Tolworth to take the small balsa glider to Anthony. He liked it very much and flew it on the lawn.

*Green Line is a commuter coach brand in the Home Counties of England. It is owned by ArrivaGreen Line has its origin in the network of coach services established by the London General Omnibus Company (LGOC) in the 1920s and 1930s. After World War II, the network was part of London Transport Executive/London Transport Board, and from 1970 to 1986 was operated by London Country Bus Services.
