Felt very bad at first, sick and dizzy, pains and headache. No breakfast. Phoned office and went home to bed. Sorry to leave the others on a pay-day, but I could hardly see. Lay in bed all day, taking only hot tea. Felt a little better this evening, though head still rather bad. Back to the Oven [for Castle duty tonight]. Cold wet day.
