13th-15th Aug 1947: friends & family
13 Wed. Rather warm, fine and sunny but with a fresh wind. Got the groceries including a jar of delicious chocolate and malt spread: also to fish shop. Expecting Fred Fraine to call as he has promised to come but he did not. Spent the afternoon playing with Laurie. To Merton Churchyard to water dear Mother’s grave: met Mrs. Child.
14 Thur. Cool, dull morning, very warm, bright sunny afternoon. Did shopping locally in morning including buying a birthday card for Dad and posting it. To Wimbledon in afternoon, bought two beautiful passe partout spring landscapes as a present for Dad. Also a pepper pot and a pair of brake blocks at Woolworth’s: met Mr Akhurst there. Ciss took the pictures to Tolworth and Dad was pleased with them: they will be hung on the walls of his bedroom.
15 Fri. Very warm: glorious sunny day. To butchers etc: all the usual Fri. shopping. Rode along Robin Hood Way in afternoon. To see the Pontifexes at Worcester Park in evening, also to enquire about Alf Snudden who had a serious operation last Tuesday: his condition is satisfactory.
