11th-12th March 1947: Fred has his school examination papers
11 Tues. Very cold, very dull, very bitter NW wind – an awful day. Cycled to Morden and stood in the catsmeat queue for ¾ of an hour and got some very good meat, also bought saccharin and watercress there. Laurie called to have a lesson in whist; I am teaching him and Gwennie. To station to get a paper.
12 Wed. Morning frost; only a degree or two above freezing all day; very dull, rain commencing midday. Got the groceries locally and took a note to Lily in Botsford. Showed Gwennie my school examination papers and drawings, also school groups: she was very interested. Donald has German measles.
