16th Jan 1948: Dad's pocket watch
16 Fri. Cold, dull, less wind. Got a nice piece of beef also suet and a tin of liver paste at the butchers. Got a date pudding in a tin at Johnsons. Bought cats meat at Merton; came home via Morden; saw some nice new bikes in a shop. Dad’s watch which I inherited has not gone since I took it, but I looked at it to-day and found it had run down so it must have been going in my pocket: I wound it up & it seems to be all right now. Designed a new 41 ins wing for the large model.
