3.45 awakened by Millway who had got a stiff neck lying up against some boxes. I told him to call Jack and he got in his bed. Jack called me about 5.30 so I got up, made fire up and put the saucepan on for tea. I had a few shots at rabbits then at 6.340 called Godfey who made a cup of tea and did the breakfast, egg on fried bread. I had another nap and then had a walk round. 10.45, the sun is shining lovely. What would I give to be home again and packing up our dinner to go down to Shingle Street and sit by the sea with the line out and bask in the sun. I had a shave and wash then put the chops in the pan ready for dinner. We had a cup of tea waiting then had dinner. It was very nice. We were relieved and I got ready to go out. Cycled over to Rodwell and Doris and Lyn met me. We walked back and I did some digging out the celery trench. Watered tomatoes and then went indoors. I got a book to read and Doris did a jig saw puzzle. Mr Smeaton was at home guard firing party. Mrs Smeaton came home from Newbury. We had supper, then I got ready to go out again. We walked up the drive. it was very cold and it felt like another frost. made bed.
