Fri Jan XXIX
Spent most of today in Auck. Shopping, but came home in time to have a long swim. Then into M. A. for more shopping.
Trains = 25
Shopping could be strange at times. Although ahead of the UK in some respects, the country was behind in several others. They had only just abandoned half day closing on Wednesday and most major stores still closed at lunchtime on a Saturday. Looking over the diary, this means that a lot of shopping was done during the week and, if we kids were involved, after we finished school.
