Week of 21 October 1946

Monday, 28 October

Wilma, Tess and Jenny slept here

47 Hamilton Terrace

Feeling much better. Bet, Hester and Barnaby lunched here. In the afternoon Tess and I took Barnaby, Jenny and luggage to Anne's for tea where we met Bet and Hester who had been shopping. Bet, Anne and Hester went later to see The Guinea Pig, and Tess and Jenny stayed behind to keep house. After supper Grattan drove them back here and Hester came too.

I have felt much better today.

Wilma, Tess and Jenny slept here

A tiring non-stop day. Shopping morning and afternoon. Then Bet turned up for tea (with crumpets). Afterwards Ray, Tess and Jenny came back from a shopping jaunt. Ray  stayed for drinks, and finally for supper. I felt very tired in spite of the fact that Wilma and Tess did all the cooking, etc. Bet and Hester had been to Buckingham Palace Investiture to receive Denis's OBE. She said it was all very well organised. Dr Moncrieff came to see me. Very pleased with my blood pressure - 150!

Dr Moncrieff's seventh treatment.
