Pain much less and I came down to lunch and stayed up till bedtime, but did not of course feel up to much. Bet had to be out in the evening at a Conservative meeting. We had a lovely dish of strawberries.

Hester and Louise turned up at teatime, H looking tired but Louise in the pink and extremely pretty. The damage to their contents at Notley seems far less serious than I had feared. They hope the roof will be on again in a month and they will be living there again in July.

Ringshall - 47 Hamilton Terrace
A lovely morning and we were able to sit out and have elevenses on the lawn. Hester drove Bet and me into Stowmarket and put me into the 2.30 through train to Liverpool St. A very comfortable journey and I had tea on the train.
