23rd-24th Jan 1947: no meat + fish queue + light snow
23 Thur. Hard frost all day; dull, light fall of snow; bitter N wind. No meat at the butchers so bought a tin of meat & vegetables which was very nice. A long queue at the fish shop although there was no fish. The women just wait in the bitter weather in the hope that some may arrive. Took up the slack in the back brake of my bicycle.
24 Fri. Severe frost all day, dull, bitter N wind. Got a nice piece of pork this week. Did other shopping locally: also bought fish in afternoon. Gwennie & Donald called in afternoon.
