26th Dec 1947: dominoes and imaginary tea

26 Fri. Boxing Day. Rather cold, much sunshine, windy but rain at night. Repaired the scrubbing board, morticing in a new piece of wood. Gwennie called to show me her doll’s tea service with cups, saucers, plates, knives, forks, spoons, milk-jug, teapot and tray – all made in plastic. Of course I had to have biscuits and imaginary tea: the biscuits were real however. She also brought some of her mother’s Christmas pudding and cake – very nice. Played some more Beethoven Sonatas. Played dominoes with Ciss and lost badly.
