19th May 1944: a rose for Gwennie
19 Fri. Mild, cloudy, almost calm. Miss Brewer still comes every Friday morning. Got the meat and other foodstuffs locally. Paid for newspapers and posted letters. Also walked along rail-path in morning; saw Pacific loco with different front end to the others. Also saw a re-built Wainwright 4.4.0. Made a bed for the marrows, digging very deeply and burying vegetable refuse as manure. Short cycle ride in evening. Doris, Laurie and Donald called to say Gwennie had been operated on for tonsil trouble and was doing as well as could be expected. Gave Doris a nice Mme. E. Herriot rose to take to Gwennie.
