1st-4th Sept 1947: first day at school
1 Sept Mon. Very cool morning & evening but very mild midday with some nice sunshine but rather rough. The children came morning and afternoon, played games with them: they go back to school tomorrow. Bought fish locally. Packed the remainder of the special poppy seeds.
2 Tues. Very cool morning & night, becoming very mild by afternoon: some nice sunny intervals but some heavy clouds. Shopping locally in afternoon also to Morden. Gwennie & Donald called. The children went back to school after their holidays to-day. Dennis Veale & Kenny Norris went to school for the first time to-day. Gave Gwennie a music lesson.
3 Wed. Very mild, mostly dull & overcast but some sunshine; calm. Got the groceries also bought fish at Morden. To Tolworth principally to see Dad. Made some plasticine models for Anthony. Found my front brake cable frayed and broken, the original cable lasted 38 years. I put a new one in 17 months ago & it has broken: very poor materials available now. Started to put another one in.
4 Thur. rather warm, overcast. Calm, lovely and quiet: I like a windless day; they are so rare. Bought fish and cement locally. Fitted new cable to front brake of cycle. Watered dear Mother’s grave in evening. Cleaned up the shallots and selected a number for seed for next year.
