4th March 1944

Saturday
Still freezing hard, and a clear blue sky.  Lot of planes going out early this morning.  Could get very little done at the office as there were so many people in and out all the time.  Can’t concentrate.  Daphne was rather miserable, so on the spur of the moment, asked her to go to the new Orson Wells film this afternoon – “Journey into Fear”.  Very good, and much enjoyed it.  Afterwards had sausages and tea at Culver Street, then cycled to Higham and spent the evening washing crockery and trying to get the place clean.  Have not yet been able to get my stuff away.  Can't get a horse anywhere.

Back to Dedham at 8, and went to Sisson’s for an hour or so.  Felt much better today.  Big crowd in the “Sun” tonight, and a lot of noise, laughing, singing, clattering of bottles and glasses.

To bed early, confident there would be no raid.  How mad we are – all at once we have decided that there will be no serious raids in brilliant moonlight, whereas only 4 or 5 months ago we prayed for wet, dirty weather at the full moon.
