Lido, Friday May 8th
My own darling, It seems an awfully long time since I heard from you. True, I had a letter yesterday, but it was written on Tuesday, & I'm wondering whether you've been out since then. Perhaps you'll ring this evening. I had a letter from Vera today saying that Norman had been home on 48 hours leave, with a bad cold. After all, you've had a cold too. He has been on the two trips to Trondheim but on the first their engine caught fire over the North Sea & they had to come back.
I wonder if you played in your tennis match. It's glorious weather for tennis, sunny & not too hot. Do come on leave soon, while it still lasts. Must go & pick Frances up now, she's making suspicious noises. All my love to you, dearest, Ursula
