" I took my new PLA boots to be stretched yesterday because they were to tight round my corn. Nana came yesterday and gave me 3d. Dad is going to have his holiday from the Hippodrome this week.
I read some of my library today. I painted the baby's pram wheels, spokes and axles and back: I also painted an old pair of lamp wick scissors which I unearthed but scraped them clean again as they were sticky and wouldn't get dry*.
Weather: Hot all day. Some clouds about. No rain."
* Special scissors for trimming the wick of an oil lamp. Nowadays he could take the find to the Museum of London for identification and hopefully wouldn't try and clean it or paint it without getting advice first.
