Long alarm, from a quarter to one this morning, until half past 8, but very few planes over. Sometime during the night there were some very heavy bombs somewhere towards the west. High wind all day. Short alarm during the afternoon, and the usual evening alarm at 7.45. I managed to have two hours at the cinema between the two. Have not the nerve to sit through an alarm in a picture-house. Harding was complaining a good deal about the amount of duty he has to do.
