Up 6.50, had a cup of cocoa, went on parade and in to dining hall. Had a wash and shave, had breakfast, porridge, egg, bacon. Started work on more drawings, had a walk out to the canteen at break time. They were charging full price for cigs. It is a lovely morning, it's going to be warm. had dinner, meat, parsnips and potatoes, prunes and custard, then went back to hut. Had a read and a nap and then went down to gun post and posted some letters, went in to guard room and had a chat with Bert Windle. Came back and did some more work and packed up for tea. Had tinned meat, cake. Got dressed and cycled over to Rodwell. Met Doris and Lyn. We sat down on the bank and talked. I told her I had put in for a SOP but don't know if it will go through. Doris said that she had heard from Mum and was excited about getting a place. We had a piece of choc that G. Doughty gave me for Lyn. We walked back and washed up then put Lyn to bed and read to her. I watered the tomatoes and cabbage lettuce plants and then we read our book in the chair. Had supper and talked about planting, then cycled home 11.15.
Rodwell. Up usual time and all usual jobs. Mrs S got a strained ankle. Did some washing this afternoon, hung it out, then got Lyn up and Philip 3.15 (Mrs S gone to Mother's Union). Played in the garden, got tea and we had ours, then went to meet Bill. Sat by the road and discussed the 'holding' as I had a letter from Mother this morning but no really special news. Put Lyn to bed, I wrote to Mother while Bill did the watering, then read 'Down in the Valley' and talked. Supper and up to the top, late tonight, hope Bill comes tomorrow as I shall be alone. 11.00 pm so G. Night.
