17th-18th Sept 1946: picture framing complete... present of an egg!

17 Tues. Rather cool, rather windy, some sunshine in afternoon. To Merton to buy fish; tried two shops to see if I could get some picture glass: a place in Haydons Rd promised some to-morrow morning. Cut wooden backs for the two pictures. Increased the wing incidence of my model plane.

18 Wed. Cool, becoming milder: dull, rain all day. Got the groceries in morning. Also bought fish at Merton and two pieces of picture glass. Framed the two landscapes, backed them with thin wood and paper and hung them in the passage where they look really well. Posted letter to Chas Staden. Stripped fuselage and re-covered it with green tissue. Ann Conley brought me an egg.
