Awake about 5 then temperature taken. Had a wash and shave. Breakfast porridge, bacon on fried bread, marmalade, then read book A Passage to India. Had a cig. Bed made and read the paper. It is a lovely day. It would have been grand at home. Had a bath and then ** and orderly dressed my place. I had dinner, meat, peas, potatoes, stewed plums, custard. After dinner I read some more of my book, and then Kidlet came. It was nice to see her and she brought me my ** some cream. It was OK. We put jig saw together and then tea. They gave Doris a cup and I had bread, butter, jam and cream cake and bun. I gave Doris my piece of chocolate. Poor old Kidlet, it's lonely for her and it rained when she came so she got a bit wet. I had a nice time with her and she went off after tea. I had a read and a wash. Played cards for a while. It seemed very empty. Had supper,, lemonade, bread and cheese. I read a little more and smoked a little. Went to sleep.
