I paid for my gardening with an attack of bronchitis. It came on Tues. evening and I was very full of pain in both sides and my shoulder until Wed. evening. I felt worn out and Rene put a hot water bot. to my back and it eased it a little, then she put me a Kaolin Clay poultice on my sides before she went home for tea and it gradually settled down before bed-time and I slept nearly all night. I had to get Father up about 4.30 on Wed morning as I was in such pain. He got me some hot tea and I rubbed my sides with Quick-Rub which eased them a little. I got up Fri. afternoon.
My pen dried up here so had to stop.

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