Week of 30 September 1946

Monday, 30 September

Wilma slept here

47 Hamilton Terrace

Still feeling poorly and did very little except that I went to lunch with Edgar Falkner at the Park View Hotel next to St George's Hospital. A horrid hotel and a beastly lunch, but he is a dear old man aged 84. His daughter and husband came in afterwards. They are all just starting back to Australia. I had never met any of them before.

Wilma slept here

Dr Moncrieff came in the morning and found my blood pressure high - 200 - and urged me to rest a lot. She is sending another doctor to take my blood count. She first suggested my going to the hospital to get it done but afterwards said she would rather I had it done here.

Tess Bawtree came to supper and afterwards she and Wilma went to the "Britain Can Make It" exhibition.

I was down at Clifton Road to do a little necessary shopping but it was quite as much as I felt up to.

Wilma slept here

Evelyn left early to catch a train to Cheshire where Guy has a living. Grattan came in his car and took Wilma and Lil's luggage down to Mabel's house where they picked up Lil and the remainder of her things , and went to the flat. Wilma did great work settling her in, and got back here very dirty after tea, and then dashed out to supper with Anne, etc.

A Dr Whittingham came in the morning and took a blood test.
