Week of 2 December A1946

Monday, 2 December

Wilma, and Reg slept here

47 Hamilton Terrace

Reg arrived in time for tea. He's staying here for the week.

In the morning I went to Olympia to try and book seats for Flecker and Bawtree children but there was a colossal queue and after half an hour's wait I gave it up.

A local vet Mr Cartbaid came to see Emily. He thinks badly of her eye. She has got glaucoma.

Feeling very poorly all day. Reg drove me to John Barnes where I handed over a rabbit to Anne and then to the Mercury Theatre where we took tickets for tonight's performance of The Family Reunion. We drove there in the car and Tess Bawtree spent the evening with Wilma.

The doctor saw Sarah again and found her much better.

My job gardener turned up and did a good day's work and drank a lot of tea! His name's John Carolan. I did some local shopping and lunched here. Afterwards did some shopping in Oxford Street (unsuccessfully) and on my way back got Xmas cards, zip bag for Pippa and house meat for Emily. Reg spent most of the day with Aline. He hears that the work on the Elmhurst kitchen won't be finished till next Wednesday so he will stay here till then.
