26th April 1948: half-day off school for royal anniversary!
26 Mon. Mild, fine bright sunny day but the wind is
still keen. Planted ferns and hypericum in the front garden, after much labour
trying to break up the soil. Sowed more poppy seeds in the back garden. The
King and Queen’s Silver Wedding: the school children had a half-day holiday.
Bought fish in Morden.
