20th August 1944

Slept from quarter to 6 until 11 o’clock.  Torrential rain from 12 until 1.  Terrible for the corn.  The wind veered right round to the N.E.

This evening went over to Dedham, but found the Sissons at supper, so did not stop.  Called at Lt. Rivers on the way back, but there were strange cars outside so I did not call.  Back to “Woodside” rather depressed and had a lonely supper.  Early bed, hoping for a long sleep.
News in the Sunday papers seems pretty cheerful, but very difficult to know what to believe.
