09 Feb 1942, W J Carrie's wartime diary
Dearest, it is now 9/2/42. It is very difficult to write these days. We have a certain amount of communal labour to do and that seems to take most of one's energy - then one has only to wait from one meal to the next. I do the cooking for the 3 of us and make tea for the whole flat. We have porridge as an extra for tiffin and then boil up the leftover rice from tiffin and dinner into a pudding for dinner. I never want to eat rice again!
Cheero Darling. I can't write more now. B
