25th April 1948: jaunty tortoise

25 Sun. Very cool, sunny morning, cloudy later; a cold NE wind of hurricane force. Gwennie, Laurie, Donald and Margaret came in afternoon for me to take their photograph which I developed along with the one I took at Tolworth on 18th inst. Alb, Lily and Anthony paid a surprise visit and had tea here – without Ciss as she had gone to Edie Hopkins at Stoneleigh. The tortoise which was in the garden last summer came this afternoon walking along the garden path with quite a jaunty gait and seemed quite happy to be here but I now know where it lives so took it back to Roy Eves in Bronson Road.

  1. "with quite a jaunty gait" - what a wonderful turn of phrase! It made me laugh out loud.
