3rd-4th May 1947: lack of food for cat... strike continues
3 Sat. Rather mild, quite a lot of sun. the wind is still boisterous but not quite so cold or rough as yesterday. Cycled miles to buy cats food but the meat shops have nothing and most of the fish shops are closed on account of the strike but I got a cod cutlet in Coombe Lane. Gwennie came to do more work painting a birthday card for her mother. Started laying the new pink floorcloth on the front bedroom.
4 Sun. Rather mild; downpour till afternoon, a little finer later. Wrote two stanzas of simple poetry to put on the birthday card Gwennie is making for her mother, also drew a daffodil design.
