Monday 26th April 1965
Acknowledgement from Staylong today.
Very cold and blustery day – washing dried quickly this morning – a good thing I had it out early. Only managed a short walk around the block – between heavy thunder showers this afternoon.
Tuesday 27th April 1965
Been very quiet today with the children at school. Very stormy and cold too – just like winter.
Nothing much of import to relate. Young Wives tonight. Hope it won’t be raining.

Cyril had his last day off today. We went to Tolworth after dropping the children at school. Had a coffee out – then back to hard digging for Cyril and I spent the rest of the morning cleaning out the garage.

Better day today – some sunshine
Gillian went dancing after school. Philip complained of tummy ache at tea time and went to bed without any tea. I mowed the lawn and have since been doing my month end accounts.

Cyril to Avonmouth 06:00
Cyril was very late home and as soon as he got in (8:40) Leonard took Mary and I to the farm for our pork and eggs. Disappointing venture though – most of the pork had been sold. Mary and I went to Esher this morning – bank and shopping.
Saturday 1st May 1965
We went to Tolworth to shop this morning – parking was easy over the supermarket. Bought slippers and plimsolls for Phil, slippers for me and shoes for Gillian.
Oh – did something I’ve always wanted to do – bought a crab and dressed it for tea. Very nice too!
Sunday 2nd May 1965
Lovely day. I’ve washed the car – Cyril not feeling so well – I wish he would go to the Doctor – he has a bad back ache, swollen ankle and a sty on his eye. We went to the Arts and Crafts Exhibition at the Villiage Centre – then for a ride round the district!
Shampooed us all after tea.
