August 14

   I got up – grudgingly – to wash my

hair; and then we went down to the

new house (full of painters, plumbers

and their problems) and fixed the

books in the shelves of the library.

They look real purty and I

discovered books I’d forgotten about.

   This evening I dressed and went

down to Aunt Bert Thompson for dinner

and to entertain Mervin Davies, of the

RAF and George Currie of the Canadian

Medical Corps – only they entertained

me. They’re loads of fun (especially

Mervin) and very intelligently interesting

Eye witness accounts of airraids, the

aftermath of Dunkirk and the

“people’s opinion” of Churchill (They

worship him), King and Queen (best

solution for government – keeps empire

together too) and Canadian governmental

problems were fascinating.
