5th-6th May 1947: fish shops either closed - or too expensive!
5 Mon. Cool, becoming mild; some nice morning sun, dull, windy, rain later. Finished laying the new pink oil-cloth on the front bedroom floor. Cycled all about and finally bought some whiting at Morden. Gwennie and Laurie did some more work on the mother’s birthday card.
6 Tues. Cool, becoming mild, some sun; the wind dropped by evening. Laid the new pink oil-cloth on the landing. Toured the district to find cat food but failed. There is a strike on and most fish shops are shut and those open have only a small supply of expensive fish. Laurie did some work on the birthday card. Turned over a bed in the garden and weeded the onion seedlings.
