21st-22nd Jan 1947: £6 10s suit ordered, from Wimbledon

21 Tues. Hard, black frost, very cold day; some sun midday: foggy later. To Wimbledon in afternoon to order a new suit, a dark blue with a pale blue stripe price 130/- it will be ready in four months time! I stood for ¾ of an hour in a queue to buy some smoked haddock. Called in at 34: Gwennie had a sick headache.

22 Wed. Sharp frost lasting all day; dull, bitter E wind. Got the groceries locally. Thence pedalled to Mitcham in the bitter weather to buy cats meat. Played dominoes with Ciss in evening: I won.
