Dear Ros,

Was very pleased to get a long, interesting letter from you today. You do seem to have been having excitements!

Glad you’ve heard from Jim. I can just imagine what he’d feel like getting 21 letters! Something like my R/Gunner the other day when his back numbers caught him up. He’d a huge pile of letters and a number of parcels which took him ages reading & opening.

Was interested in Michael’s birthday celebrations. He does seem to have had a good time. I expect he enjoyed his party with Grandad, Granny & Auntie Mary there. I guessed it wouldn’t be long before he was standing up

& was quite excited to hear he’d done so. I bet he’ll soon be running around and then you can look out missis!!! So he’s getting his grinders is he. I’ve also been getting a wisdom & it’s a horrible great thing & as soon as it’s ready I’m going to see if the dentist will get rid of it.

Poor old Jack, he certainly made a bad choice. He’s lucky to have someone like you next door.

Best regards to Tom & Trevor. Be seeing you maybe at Easter. Love to you all [underlined] Bill [/underlined]
