25th-26th Jan 1947: shopping list, with shilling bag of coalite

25 Sat. Severe frost all day, dismal misty, a light sprinkling of snow. In afternoon bought fish, fish paste, two birthday cards, scouring powder, some throat pastilles and a 14lb bag of coalite @ 1/-; all locally.

26 Sun. Very severe frost; snowing all day, dismal misty, the snow is drifted by the fine gusts of wind. Some children called but Gwennie & Donald stayed at home because the weather is so bad. Mrs. Akroyd came to tea.
