23rd-24th Oct 1946: heard Australia on my short-wave radio
23 Wed. Cold, gloomy, bitter NE wind. Got the groceries: waved to Winifred Ewens. To Wimbledon to get the big saw from Hughes who have sharpened it: also to get fish. To dear Mother’s grave in afternoon. In addition to daffodils already planted I, to-day planted some wallflowers and some purple crocus bulbs.
24 Thur. Very cold: fine, bright sunny day: bitter NE wind. To butchers to buy liver also to cold meat shop. Got accumulator. Did some work in the garden preparing a bed for bulbs and wallflowers. Some work on cabinet for a new S.W. receiver. Received Melbourne, Australia on the short waves.
