1st May 1948: food parcel from Australia
1 May. Sat. Cool, very heavy clouds, small amount of sun in morning otherwise dull. Heavy showers, one peal of thunder. Wrote Capt. Marshall thanking him for the parcel of foodstuffs received yesterday from Australia. Letter from Aunt Nellie saying Uncle Tom is getting over food poisoning. Gwennie and Laurie called. Bought fish locally. Painted the sitting room door with cream high-gloss paint: looks superb. Made six prints of the Thompson children’s photo, also four prints of the one I took of Katie. Mrs. Alderton called; she is Katie’s sister, both Austrian.
