Up at 8.50, shaved and had breakfast. Washed up, did the potatoes and went down the fields with Doris and Lyn. We sat down then had a walk through the wood. Came back to dinner, washed up and had a read on the bed, then got up to tea. I took Lyn up the garden, put fresh soil round the cucumbers and tomatoes. Lyn helped then had tea. After tea I played with the children, hide and seek, then put Lyn to bed. Read her a story and got my things ready. Gave Doris Lyn's 7 shillings and Mrs Smeaton gave me a tin for my soap. I wrote a short letter to Mum and dad and suggested hay making but Mr Smeaton did not think it worth while. I got a book to read and am going to wind wool for Doris. She wound it herself. I read on and then had supper and cycled back through Lady Benson Park which was very much nearer.
