47 Hamilton Terrace
Hester slept here
I met Mabel at the Plane Tree Restaurant opposite the YWCA and had an early lunch before going to a meeting on Korea organised by the Peace Council. Very interesting speeches of all shades of opinion but very noisy Communist interruptions. Enid feeling poorly with a tired heart.

47 Hamilton Terrace - Lower Hall Farm
A busy morning packing and getting food and presents for LHF. Hester was most helpful. Hildegard came with me to the station to carry some of my luggage. Hester and I lunched in the train and Bet and Awly met us at Halesworth in the car. We got back in time for tea. It had turned into a lovely evening, and it was very interesting meeting everyone and making friends with Barnaby and John.
But I felt very tired.

Delightfully happy household and I am well pleased with all my grandchildren. Bet's short hair is a great improvement.

In the afternoon we picked up John at his school and went to Walberswick where Bet, Hester, Awly and Alice bathed, and John and I paddled - very pleasant.
