Up about 20 to nine. Doris had a card from Mrs Thrower saying her nan had two kids, a nanny and Billy. That started Doris off on goats again. She would like a kid to rear. I got downstairs 9 am and read the Press. Had scrambled egg and *** on toast and porridge. Enjoyed it very much. After then, changed my socks and got Lyn's coat for her. Went down the town with Mum and Lyn and I bought a bell and grips and some valve rubber. I carried some stuff she bought, some fish fins for the cats, 11d a lb, what a price things are now, savoys 1s 1d each. Came back and had dinner. After dinner I had a rest in the chair till about four then Doris and I went for a walk over old Manor grounds. We saw a grey squirrel and then walked over the fields, saw some frog spawn and then went back by Hadley Woods back by the golf course. Had tea. After tea I played draughts with Dad, he won four, I won one and a draw. We had supper and Doris got ready for the morning and we went to bed early. Put the alarm for half past five. Goodnight.
