19th February 1941

Had the afternoon off, and Penelope Belfield came over for the pony. It went awfully well and she drove most of the way. It shies at paper, but takes no notice whatever of traffic, nor even of giant excavators, which are digging more tank traps at Ardleigh, all by the railway, and incidently doing immense damage to growing crops.

Had tea at the Belfields' and got a lift home in a car, as the bus did not come for some reason. A very pleasant outing which I much enjoyed.

Beautiful spring day.
