19th May 1948: cricket on Cannon Hill... "jolly good time"

19 Wed. Warm, lovely bright sunny day; the wind was not quite so strong but bad enough and still E. Got the groceries in morning. Went with Gwennie, Laurie and Donald to Cannon Hill Common where we played three cricket matches the three versus me. They won two matches to my one: oh, it was hard not to win! I mean it took a lot of engineering in order to lose, but I managed the results as I desired. Donald lost one of his stumps, broke his bat and lost the lemonade bottle but we all had a jolly good time: I am sure I did.
