Darling Johnnie,
Thank you for your letter Sunday evening, so glad you had a peaceful journey back. Nothing very exciting has happened here. I was ironing all yesterday evening except for an hour’s practise.

and it would be sickening if it just didn’t happen to appeal to them. I suppose I shall have to be strong-minded about it! Or must I?
The lambskin rug has come, its very soft & nice; it is in its natural condition, & I propose to trim it off & mount it on felt, if I can get any, as its rather an odd shape now. It will go on the side of the bed near the door, as it shows more. By the way, are you [underlined] sure [/underlined] you wouldn’t rather sleep nearer the window?
Must get cracking on the afternoon schedule.
All my love dearest
Ursula.
P.T.O.

No sign of the tools yet – would you like to find out if & when they were dispatched? Pity really that you couldn’t bring them with you, as we’re having the taxi
