Another cold and frosty morning. We’re not seeing much of Gillian – she’s out on her bike all the time.
Have written five ‘thank you’ letters this evening – and we’ve all had baths. Joan rang this afternoon.

Very cold and frosty morning. I’ve done some washing but it’s all stiff! Cyril and I took the children to Chertsey. We stopped at Esher en-route for a bit of shopping – then as soon as we got back, Cyril went to Reading.

It was horrible going to work today! I left at 11:15 but brought a pile of work home with me. Gillian has gone to Peter Pan with Avril and Nicky. It’s a filthy, cold, wet day.

Philip to Michael’s party.
Did a short spell at the office – but isn’t there some work mounting up! Not quite so cold today. Cyril is off to the bank now and I must get Phil (though Peggy has actually written Cyril) ready for his party. Gillian has been out cycling.

Oh! I’m so tired!! This afternoon, Eileen, Dad and I have been to London – and how we’ve walked – from Gamages though Oxford Street, down to Marble Arch! Caught the 6:52 home and we’ve been in to Phyl and Stan’s for a drink.
