Had so much work at the office today that I came home making my mind up to give it up on Mr Murray’s return!
Went to Keep Fit feeling as though I needed it!

Much better day at the office – so am reconsidering yesterday’s decision!! Had a good cookery evening at Y.W. – after a session here this afternoon with the children making biscuits!!

Nice day – another busy one at the office and I don’t know when we shall get straight – or at least when I will get straight.
Gill to Brownies.

Harvest Festival at School
Office work easing up a bit now that I’m managing to get down my pile. I seem to be paying out all the firm’s money! Not a lot to do at home – have cleaned the brass this week! Big deal!!
Friday 15th October 1965
Went to Esher on the 12:05 bus – Cyril picked me up for the homeward trip. Took Julian up to the village with me this afternoon to buy the veg etc. and to meet the children. No baking tonight, thank goodness.

To Molly and Ted
Very nice day and we had a pretty good trip to Watford – but got lost during the last little bit of the trip!! Enjoyed ourselves very much – children were quite good. We left soon after seven and arrived home at 8:30pm. Phil was a bit upset as he left his new car behind. We had shopped at Surbiton en route, for Gill’s satchel (birthday) and Phil bought a car with his left-over birthday money.

We weren’t going to do much today, but Cyril has worked hard clearing out the porch and painting. I’ve done some washing and ironing and prepared part of tomorrow’s lunch. Had a terrible back ache all day.
