Another lovely dawn. Nothing happened at all last night. Felt strained today, and did not get through a very great quantity of work. Went to the bank, and found I had not so much money as I thought. My current account is now overdrawn £3.8.2, and on deposit I have only £202.19.10. I have £11 in cash, but that is all. Must consider seriously selling Robin. I owe about £16-£20 to various people.
Went off early this afternoon and had tea at the Roses at Boxted. Early in the evening, as I was looking across the steep little valley towards the village, I heard the cuckoo, the first this year.
Cycled on to Lawford in the dusk. Had hardly got to bed when a huge flight of bombers began to go out, I could see several in the light of the moon, and could hear voices from the cottages in the lane as people came out to look at them.
