Langley Rise - Christ's Hospital
A lovely morning for my last, but woke feeling seedy. A rush to get packed as GH sent a message for me to be ready at 11.30. Actually we did not leave till 12 o'clock. He dropped me at Chiltern Court where I lunched, and then I met Lil and collected my luggage at Harley St, and taxied to Victoria where I caught the 3.18 train.
Pippa and Nicky met me at Horsham and I drove out in the new car. After tea I unpacked and went to bed feeling very tired, and some cold still hanging around.
Reg rang up and Pippa told him I had arrived all right.
