24th-25th Feb 1947: pulled sledge for children
24 Mon. 16 degs of frost in morning. 11 at night. Some bright sunshine in afternoon when it thawed for a short while. The three children called morning and afternoon as they have a mid-term holiday. Played beat your neighbour out of doors, dominoes and draughts with them. Gave them rides in turn on their sledge. The road is very slippery and towing the sledge was rather precarious as it was difficult to keep a foothold.
25 Tues. 14 degs of frost in morning slightly thawing in the hazy sunshine in afternoon; freezing again later. To Merton in afternoon to buy fish and other things. Gwennie called.
