Did not get up until 9 this morning. Very pleasant riding in. Alarms today at 4.10pm, 4.30, and from half past 6 until 10.40. Just after the last alarm was sounded I heard a few explosions, but nothing more. Slept at the Castle as usual. A very cold, dark night. Hull came in for a few minutes today, but was away all yesterday.
