Colder than ever and our electricity was cut off for half an hour before breakfast. Reg went off to the Farm soon afterwards. Wilma, Hester and I took sandwiches and went to the early performance of Les Enfants du Paradis at the Rialto.

We were all disappointed and nipped to the bone. Got back to an early tea.

A very thick fall of snow and Reg employed 2 men to clear our steps.
