Poor Daisy, she has had a hard life. She will be grieving over Norman going [into Army]. Jean very seedy until after tea, but face gone down considerably and she is feeling better. If I am better she will go to school tomorrow. Have been fit for nothing all day. Don’t think med. agrees with me. Took 3 Eph tabs at 6 p.m. and am a little better.

Letter from Ron this morning, so many men have been posted and others on M.G. course that leave was stopped, hopes to get next week. Have not seen Ke[ith] and Mar[ion] so shall have to post towel and spoons. Rene came again tonight, also Eff for a few minutes. She wants a rabbit but no place for it yet. Rene was too late for Father to pick her two out. Have cut out a tray cloth for Jean to work. It is cream linen, she is hem stitching it. It is coming a few spots of rain again after a fair but windy day. Looks very showery. We have done no washing yet this week so hope I am better and that it is fine tomorrow. Jean is going to bed. I shall not be very long I think if I do not get more wheezy. Had several hours sleep last night.

Have you read an introduction to May Hill & family (includes photographs) and explored ‘The Casualties Were Small’?
