9th August 1948: An improvement
9 Mon. Very mild, just a few sunny periods after rain, but an improvement to-day. The four children called: Margaret, in spite of being so young is very self-willed and violent: glad when she went home. Some shopping locally and in afternoon walked along rail path to Wimbledon: bought plastic pastry cutters for Gwennie; one was in the shape of a ginger-bread man and the other a dog. Short cycle ride in evening. Re-ground the valve seating of the water tap and put on a new washer: it does not drip now.
