Darling,
Frances weighed 19.8 yesterday, an advance of only 2 oz, so the week before must have been a freak. Anyway I’m keeping on with the 10 pm feed for a while longer. We sit her up in her high chair for a time in the evening now, & she loves it.
Thanks very much for your letter. I’m sorry
[page break]
you couldn’t get over to PM after all, however it was grand for me to get a letter unexpectedly. I’m glad you seem to be getting somewhere at last with the medical attention, I only hope they are really thorough at Halton.
Nothing much to report this end. I’ve been drying some apple rings today. They’re not finished yet. This evening I’m due to go to dinner to the Milligans – what a gay dog! I went to the Greenishes last evening with a cert. for Mrs G & broached the subject of the
[page break]
raffle for Waqrships Week. They cottoned on well & Mrs G offered some jam & some baby wool. I suggested Mr G. might pull out the women’s teeth for his contribution, but Mrs G said at least he could give them a ride in his chair!
Must pop off to town now, Frances is impatient. I’ve stuck in all photos to date – another good job done.
Lots of love to you darling, and good luck
Yours always
Ursula.
The plumber has sent a bill for 9/6 for unbunging the sink!!
