Johnny darling,
Here are some of the things you asked for for [sic] the bicycle – the pump connection, spanner, and set of tyre levers. I have also got the oil, but as it is in a bottle I didn’t want to risk posting it but thought it would do next time you come home – but when will that be? It seems such ages.
As for the trouser clip. They seem to be very difficult to come by, but I will keep on
[page break]
trying.
I have done a bit more gardening this afternoon after a delightfully lazy morning. I had breakfast in bed, opened my presents, & then stayed on in bed while Ba bathed Frances & brought her to me for her 10 am feed, after which I got up, prepared the lunch, & went off the church, & when I got back Barbara had got the lunch ready even to making the gravy. It was a grand change. So I worked hard this afternoon, & seem to have a stack of small jobs this evening. I’m hoping to go up to the West End tomorrow for a further birthday treat.
All my love,
Ursula.
