8th Jan 1948: coal cellar & clocks
8 Thur. Rather cold, dull, bitter NW wind. Donald called; he is very argumentative. Bought cod cutlet for dinner. Bought cats meat, haricot beans and dried peas at Merton. Cleared part of the coal cellar; a dirty dusty job. When Ciss was winding the parlour clock the ratchet slipped and prevented the clock from being wound. Was able to put it right in half-an-hour.
