22nd May 1948: Our lodger, Katie, gave me a shilling...
22 Sat. Becoming rather warm: fine and sunny and the wind which is less is tending to veer SW. Did the shopping early, Gwennie came in afternoon, we played table tennis, she won three games to my two - of course. She stayed to tea. Donald came to fetch her home and he stayed and had bread and honey. Mrs Alderton came to see Katie. Katie gave me a shilling for getting her rations – bless her, I suppose she feels indebted to me. Bought 3 Woodward’s Outdoor Wonder tomato plants of the greengrocer: planted them in evening. Made a few more prints of Katie’s photo – as she asked for 4 more.
