Sunday 29th September 1940: slept till 3pm

Very cool, dull, getting very chilly. Did not wake up until 3 in the afternoon. (After a night of raids and time spent in a public shelter.) Warning from 4.30 to 5.5. p.m., one bomb. No gas, so took joint to Lily at Botsford Road as she has an electric cooker. The night raid at 8.0 p.m.. Went to Botsford shelter till the all clear at 6.10 a.m. on the 30th. Mon. Heard one or two bombs whistling over, but many fell not many miles away. Several fires as usual.
On this day: Luxembourg was incorporated into 'Great Germany.
