Monday 28th June 1965
Started well with the washing – but Mary is back so I was delayed somewhat! Cyril has had a half day and laid the first layer of cement. I did what I could to help – then walked to the village and met the children on the way home. Rang Joan.

Quite a nice day – more like Summer now. Cyril and I have been doing a bit more of the structural alteration – knocking the wall down.
Molly rang this evening.

Had a quiet morning doing my office work. Made up for it later by defrosting the fridge and giving the oven a birthday. Cyril left for London Airport to see a loading and spent the night there!

Mick’s Wedding & our 15th Anniversary
A great surprise – Cyril gave me a crystal vase!
A hectic morning. We all left for Callow End at 10:00. Did the hall flowers and church. Lunch at Marg’s. Wedding at 2:30pm. All went well, but I can’t believe Mick is wed!
Father seemed down in the dumps – Ted got drunk, but we sobered him up at Marg’s afterwards. Mick and Sue went off with great hilarity! We left the reception about 6:30 and Marg’s at 9ish. Joan, Dad, Mur and I took flowers to Mum’s grave.
Sunday 4th July 1965
We all had a lie-in and a very nice morning, playing badminton, amongst other things. Cyril and Fred went pea picking! Came home with a bag of peas and beans. We left at 3:30 – home a different way – arrived here 7pm.
