17th-18th Nov 1946: bottled goosberries

17 Sun. Rather cold, very dull, rain most of the day. Went to baby Margaret’s christening party. A nice tea with jelly, blanc-mange*, bottled gooseberries and cream. Cousin Maud was there and Gwennie, Laurie and Donald were very lively.

18 Mon. Bitterly cold, dismal, piercing SW wind. Unwound Chas Staden’s long-wave coil with a view to re-winding as it was coming to pieces. To Merton to buy cats meat. The three children called.
