Dear Myra.
Sorry I havent [sic] answered your letters sooner, but you know how things are. I must apologise for not sending Lyn the fruit he wants, but the stuff would be uneatable when it reached you. However, I'll send something for Christmas, but I dont [sic] know what it'll be yet.
I had a chat with one of the ladies serving in the YMCA canteen here today. She told me that when she lived in England as a young girl, she always spent her summer holidays at either Langland Bay or Mumbles. I have come across several people who have lived in Wales, or have Welsh parents, and apparently, the Welsh are rather popular out here.
We had a Sports day yesterday. I ran in a Relay race (nearly killed me) – we came 3rd. I've also entered a Tennis competition, & my name is down for cricket. So there need be no worries that I'll come home potbellied & lazy (at least not more so than before. Hope everyone at home is O.K., & that Paula is not being spoilt so completely as Lyn was. Love, Dannie
