24th June 1948: Home cooking

24 Thur. Very mild, some pleasant sunshine; not much wind; the nicest day for some time. Took the new ration books to butchers and grocers to get them stamped. Got Katie’s rations including a glass jar of pulverised coffee and some icing sugar: she wants to make some coffee sweets. To Morden to buy fish. Donald called, also Aunt Liza, gave her some roses. Picked some loganberries, black-currants, red currants and gooseberries which Ciss made at once into jam.
