Thursday 20th June 1940

Between mild and rather warm; some nice sunshine but the boisterous wind is maddening in its long continuation. To Wimbledon along line to buy herrings for Dinky. Aunt Liza, Doris and little Gwen to tea. Dug up polyantha plants, divided and re-planted to make a good border.

On this day: Churchill, writing notes for a speech, about being bombed - 'Learn to get used to it. Eels get used to skinning.'
