29th April 1945

Cold, but sunny.  A late breakfast while Dedham took itself to church.  Left at 12, had a cup of tea and a sandwich at Gunhill Café and went slowly to Boxted.  Called on the Roses’, who seemed glad to see me.  Stayed to tea, and then took the old track over the watermeadows to Higham, in the hope that Jacquie might be at the cottage, but alas she was not.  They have moved back to either Portsmouth or Southampton.
Back to Dedham, and spent a delightful evening in talk and idle chatter – idle, but very pleasant.
