Very tired all day. Shopped in Oxford Street in the morning and rested in the afternoon till Bet and Hester arrived for a lateish tea. They were very tired to after a long day and Hestrt is not well. She has a boil on her neck and has a cold and sore throat.

She phoned to Dickie in Ireland. There are lots of complications with regard to passport, registrar, and currency of the Paris.

I was amazed this morning when Awly marched into my room!! She had let herself in in the small hours of the morning having forgotten her own key.

Betty and Hester went off after breakfast and didn't come back till tea time. They accomplished a great deal: passport arrangements for the marriage at Marylebone register office, and she also bought her wedding garment - very smart.
