5th March 1948: what did Katie do?

5 Fri. Very cold, only 4 degrees above freezing, very dull – a good thing the E wind was of only moderate strength. Did a lot of shopping locally, also bought three cups and saucers as a birthday present to Lily: the cost 2/3 for a cup and saucer. Mrs Alderton and her sister Katie came to see the front bedroom with a view to taking it for Katie. They live near Alb & Lily at Tolworth and it is hard to find a lodging these days. We do not want a lodger but she cannot get a place elsewhere. Laurie brought some cardboard models he made at school.

Note: Mrs Alderton probably lived at 94 Largewood Avenue, Tolworth, Surbiton, Surrey. (Pre-dating postcodes.) She was possibly Austrian originally, from Vienna.
