28 Mon. Rather cool for season after a night of rain, many heavy showers and frightful skies but a few sunny periods, very fresh boisterous wind. A card from Ciss at Southbourne. Wrote her what is meant to be a phunny letter and posted. Bought fish at Morden; took Katie’s shoes for repair. Met Mrs Easam.

26 Sat. Fine, warm, sunny day, but a steady breeze made it pleasant and not too hot. Got Katie’s meat ration in morning, also fish. The garden looks very nice to-day and repays so much labour expended on it. Ciss went to Southbourne this morning to stay a week. Alb, Lily and Anthony came to tea, gave them a good spread. Anthony seemed to enjoy himself with the kitten from next door. The Sunday School treat to Bognor to-day, the weather was perfect and numbers of children from this road went – all the Thompson family went.

25 Fri. Rather warm, overcast; still. Got the meat, cakes, fish etc. all locally. Cleaned all the windows inside. Gwennie, Laurie and Margaret called. To Harold’s to enquire after Aunt Hannah in hospital: she has had three ray treatments so far. To tell Aunt Liza the news.

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.
