Rodwell. An exceedingly miserable day. Lynette went to Barnet with Ivy at 9.45 am. She was ever so happy to go but it's HELL without her, it's so dreadfully lonely. All usual jobs. Finished about 2.45 then laid on the bed till 4, got tea and had a bit myself. Then got ready and about 5.15 set off for Bill. He seemed quite keen for me to go tonight which has made me very miserable. I wonder if it would be better not to go tomorrow but I do want to see him. Left at 8.10 approx, back 8.50. Did the dining room and now to bed. Mrs S. is a perfect lady dog today, I do hate her. 9.24 pm so G. Night.
