Mrs Neal came and gave the whole house a good clean. Anne and Sarah came to tea, and later still, Mr and Mrs Gerald Tooth, with Jocelyn and Graham. We had a fresh edition of tea and drinks and it all went very pleasantly. G. Tooth was delighted with the house.

A lovely morning has turned into an unpleasant cold day. Bad luck for Anne and family driving down to Bexhill. Mabel came out to lunch. She is not looking at all well these days.

Wilma and Joan turned up for lunch. Wilma saw Joan off at Liverpool St for Wenham. After tea she and I did some gardening and later Reg rang up to say what a success Wilma had been at the Farm.
Sunday, 18 August
Lil slept here. Also Wilma
A very busy day, Wilma doing yeoman service in washing, mending, cooking for me. I felt very tired and my foot was hurting so got up late, rested and took aspirin. Lil arrived before 7 o'clock. Roddy dropped her here, but did not even come in for a drink as he was very pressed for time. Lil didn't look too bad and stayed up for supper.
