22nd-23rd Feb 1947: life goes on... in severe frost
22 Sat. Severe frost all day, very dull, snowing all day: a little less wind: there must have been a blizzard in the night. Walked to Merton in the snow to buy cats meat and other things; met John Child and Fred Spooner. Played Sebastopol at night with Ciss.
23 Sun. Very severe frost save for a few short periods of sunshine in afternoon when it thawed slightly. There were 10 degs of frost at night. Mrs Akroyd came to supper. Gave John Child an old wireless cabinet to fit his crystal set into.
