11th December 1942

Strong wind, great ragged clouds.  Decided to go by bus, as being less trouble.  Clear sky most of the day.  Very busy.  There seems no chance to get any extra help, the only girl on the books of the Juvenile Employment Bureau having just got married at 16 and a half.  When I called there I noticed a good many cards were in, but was told they were no use in an office, being young factory girls who took a week’s holiday every month, quite regularly.

We had papers today regarding a suggestion that the Government would build 250,000 cottages for farm workers next year.  As it is at present quite impossible to get existing cottages repaired, it does not seem very likely that such a scheme will be very successful.
