We went into Horsham in the morning as Reg had some chores, and we lunched at Kim. In the afternoon I picked a lot of sweet peas to take home tomorrow. After tea we went up to Hayer Hill to see the oats thrashed, and I sat on the top of the stack of bales and thoroughly enjoyed myself. We didn't get back till about 8 o'clock and then had a delightful last aperitif.

Both before and after lunch I watched the final test match at the Oval which I greatly enjoyed. The enthusiasm at England's win was spectacular. We have regained the Ashes for the first time for 20 years.

After tea I walked down to the Odeon to see Danny Kaye in Hans Christian Andersen. Very charming but too long.
