19th Feb 1947: NO cats' meat, NO coal,
19 Wed. Frost not quite so severe, less dull; wind a little less cutting. Got the groceries locally. Thence to Morden but no cats meat there, so I went to Mitcham but none there, so I bought fish in Morden on my way back. Gwennie & Donald called in afternoon: taught Gwennie how to play three’s and five’s in dominoes. The fuel situation is still critical and there is no sign of supplies of coal in this district yet. Uncle Tom & Aunt Nellie were without coal for seven weeks but they have some now.
