1st-2nd Oct 1946: coloured tissue
1 Oct. Tues. Mild, lovely sunny afternoon; slight thunder at night. To Merton to buy cats meat among other things. In afternoon to new aero-shop end of Tudor Drive: bought balsa cement & green tissue – the first coloured tissue obtainable for years. Made splendid headway on new fuselage which should be beautiful.
2 Wed Very mild, lovely sunny morning; almost calm. Got the groceries as is usual on Wednesday. Also bought reel of blue silk and some buttons, and some vinegar. To Mrs. Child to take a present and some roses for Jennifer who is seven to-day. Mrs Child’s mother was there and also the late Mr Child’s twin sister whom I had not met before. Finished the new fuselage except covering it: I like it very much.
