Up at 7.20 then washed, shaved and got report in for sick. I went to breakfast, had porridge, sausage and bacon, then went to MI room. Saw the MO. I told him about my head. He have me 7 days L.D. and asked me which stuff did me the most good. I went to Cp Hill. He said Prichard was wild about it and he said I was a skate and to put me on cleaning the rec room windows. I swept out the fire places of hut 2 and 5 then all round the paths and the drying room. I should have been on Two A but that will have to go. I went to dinner, had meat pie, greens and potatoes and date pudding and custard. I got my ointment out of MI room, menthol and vaseline, then rang up Doris. I told her about it. I went back to hut and read my book then cleaned all the rec room windows and started in the dining hall. Had tea, pie and cake. I ate my cake and took the pie over to the hut. I read a book and then wrote to Doris. I went to supper, had cheese on toast and a lump of cheese, then read a book and had a ring up to Doris, they had been threshing the beans. I went in to the canteen and had a cup of tea then back to the hut to do some more reading. I stuck some flights on a dart, then got ready for bed. I gave Rainbalt the letter to post and then got another book. I washed my bad place and put some ointment on it. Felt cold with the menthol in it. I read till I could not see.
