28th-29th Dec 1946: presents, repairs and peas
28 Sat. Rather cold becoming rather mild, dull. To butchers in morning also to buy sweets and to pay for the papers. In afternoon to Wimbledon to buy fish, also an iron angle plate to repair the damaged front door. Also some purchases locally. Several children of the road showed me their Xmas presents. Aunt Liza brought some giblet soup and some peas.
29 Sun. Cold, thick fog developing midday but clearing at night. Cousin Alf and Lily unexpectedly to tea also Mrs. Akroyd. Edie Bennett called but Ciss was out. John Child called. Tuned in America on the short waves to show Alf. Played the organ to him.
