26th November 1942
The best time of the day now seems to be between 8 and 9 in the morning, when the rising sun throws pink and golden lights on the clouds, and the moon and stars fade away in the west.
Fine today. About 10 o’clock there was an alarm for 8 minutes, but nothing came over. This is the first alarm for ten days, and the first in daylight for a month. Did not feel particularly nervous. Nobody else in the office took any notice of it.
Late out tonight and called at the Sissons, whom I have not seen for some time.
