29th-30th April 1947: my tailored blue suit is ready
29 Tues. Chilly, showers, but much bright sunshine; nasty cold wind. To Wimbledon to get my new blue suit I ordered 4 months ago. Am very pleased with it. Also bought fish & sweet-pea seeds in Wimbledon.
30 Wed. Cold, dull, rain, bitter N wind. Got the groceries, also a camel-hair brush, clarkia seeds, hearthstone, a 120 V. high tension battery and some shoe laces; all locally. Donald called in morning. Gwennie called in afternoon, she wants me to design a birthday card for her mother. I drew some tulips on a card for her to colour.
