3rd December 1944
Looked out at 6am – brilliant moon in a cloudless sky – not a ‘plane, not a sound. At 9, pouring with rain, which was cleared by a strong NW wind. Went over to
Dedham. Met Thelma on the way. Chatted about the office and about
Daphne. Nobody at Dedham, and was unable to get any tea. Went round to Ida’s and found dear little
Jacquie there. Went back with her to
Higham, a lovely walk as the moon came up.
Spent a delightful evening, and stayed until 11.30. At Dedham and
Higham time seems longer and more pleasant than in Colchester.
A few ‘planes about tonight, but no ‘divers’. In bed lay thinking what I shall do about Wisbech.
