19th April 1947: prunes a rare treat
19 Sat. Rather chilly and dull with slight showers but a little sunshine late in the day. Gwennie came to tell me she had kept up 30 at skipping so I gave her a penny and promised another penny if she could do 40. To Merton to buy fish etc in afternoon also bought a few things locally including some prunes the latter is a rare treat now-a-days. Emptied the shelter of water at last: the snow melted and ran into it but have only just succeeded in clearing it. Showed Gwennie the clarkia seeds coming up in her piece of garden here; she sowed them only last Saturday.
