Rodwell. Up usual time and all usual jobs. Dr came to Jill 4 am, 8.30 and 6.30 but she's better. Finished by 2.45. Did my ironing. 3.30 got Lyn up and sat in the garden and sewed. Got tea ready and had it with them all as Lyn was playing very happily with Bridget. Washed up, cleared up and put Lyn to bed. Altered Ivy's blue frock with the red stitching. OK, another frock. Bill rang up dinner time and 8.30. Quite all right. He's on No. 1 Yatesbury. No letters today. Got a rotten headache, sitting in the sun I expect. To bed now 9.40 pm, might as well! So Good Night.
