Darling Johnnie,
No letter from you again this morning, the postal services are really very remiss, I hope I shall get 2 tomorrow.
Theres [sic] nothing much to report here. Today we have gorgeous weather again, & I am very exercised in my mind as to what clothes to bring with me to L’boro, since I don’t want to cart around a lot of stuff nor yet be frozen or frazzled. It’s very hard! Also my black & white shoes are at the cobblers & I’m having to exercise all my wiles [missing word]
[page break]
him to get them done in time. F. & I are going into G.X. this pm to draw cash from the bank, get emergency cards & so on – Joan More came to tea with her infants yesterday, the affair passed off quite pleasantly & uneventfully.
Must go & get changed now. Lots of love darling & do write soon! By the way, if you can’t book the room for the 2nd Friday night maybe I’d better come home then & get ready for the weekend, shopping etc? Let me know, so I can make arrangements this end.
All my love
Ursula.
