    Just a few words so that I can catch 7.30 post.
    Nothing much has happened since last letter except one or two (dozen) air raids. I had good sleep last night in bed from 1p.m. till 7.a.m. the only thing that woke me up was the all clear at 5.35.
    You will note that the address above is slightly different from the other letter as I thought it was Enfield Town but it seems this is Enfield proper. Don’t get me wrong, I am still in the same lodgings.
    My mother will probably come to Buxton with me, as she wishes to have a rest for a few days.
    All my love to you darling

    Thanks for your letter, it was very welcome for I miss you very much although I find it difficult to put it into words.
    I am very miserable at home and I cannot bear to be in the flat on my own.
    It certainly was a wasted visit on Wednesday I have a lot to tell you, but I always forget what I have to tell you, after the rush to the hospital and waiting outside amongst the crowds on the pavement, then the rush to get to the wards. I just sit down and listen to your tale of woe, my brain seems to go numb and I can’t think what I was going to say.
    I agree about Diane and I worry about her a lot, but I think in the end it is really the best thing for her, as she has quietened down and she will not be such a handful for you when you come home.
    Those shoes were not quite right for her, as they just fitted but did not seem to give her feet room to spread. So I took them back, and although they were not keen to change goods brought in a sale they changed them for a larger size.
    Sandra has come home for a few days as she will soon come home for a couple of weeks as Ray and Les will be going on holiday. I will try to make her do a little housework, now that her exams are over.
    I can’t write anymore as it is dinner time and I must start work again.
    See you on Saturday.
    All my love Tully.
