29 Dec 1942, Barbara Anslow's diary

Pasty today.

Spent afternoon preparing for the doctors' party wearing pink dress ((we office girls had been invited)), but when time came to go I felt unable to, can never feel at ease at these affairs, so didn't. I heard there would be dancing and was certain I would be one of the unchosen that hadn't the courage to go. After Dorothy and Olive and Norah (Witchell) had gone, Norah was so nice, she came back to try to get me to change my mind.  Olive said ((after)) it was mainly mass dances and lots of eats. I don't really regret not going – except for the food.
