18th May 1948: 'Speedy' the tortoise retruns
18 Tues. Warmer if anything; sunshine all day but the E wind is as violent as ever. Coming back along the bye-pass I could hardly move against the onslaught of the wind when cycling home after buying two tobacco plants and a newspaper. I later planted the nicotianas to give them their proper name. Donald came three times also Gwennie and Margaret. The tortoise turned up again to-day and the children fed it with green peas: I took it back once again.
