11th-12th Jan 1947: strike closes fish & butchers shops

11 Sat. Rather mild for season. Red dawn: dull day, drizzle. Toured the district and finally bought herrings in Haydon’s Rd. A strike has closed most fish shops and butchers. Dreamed of dear Connie Bradley: it was lovely to see her although only a dream.

12 Sun. Rather mild, small amount of sun in morning: dull, rain later. Nothing much to record save that John Child called in evening only to be promptly and unceremoniously fetched back by Audrey.
