Very cold, very dull. Mr Ward has put a pale green paper on the walls of the small bedroom and a pale silvery blue on the front bedroom. The ceilings have been whitewashed and drop friezes done and the effect is a great improvement - very stylish. My room is now to be done. Alan Spooner called to take some washing away: very impressed by my wireless with the parallel power output: it really is good: volume and quality. Warnings from 9.35 to 9.55 a.m. and 5.45 to 9.37 p.m.. A few machines and some gunfire but none locally: nothing dropped hereabouts.
On this day: the Luftwaffe dropped mines into the Suez canal
