27th Jan 1947: pushchair for coalite; coal frozen
27 Mon. Severe frost unbroken. More snow in morning, a little sun in afternoon: colder still at night. Walked to Merton in afternoon to buy fish. Bought a few things locally including ½ cwt of coalite. Borrowed Cousin Doris’ push-chair to bring it home. Life is hard just now with so many things lacking or hard to get and the weather is so severe. We are almost out of coal except a little in a bomb damaged bath in the garden and that is frozen solid as it is in the open and gets rain and snow on it: however, the coalite will ease the situation for a few days.
