04 Apr 1943, W J Carrie's wartime diary
Well Honey I was awake early - a little before 7 and I thought of you perhaps going to bed or sitting in front of a fire listening to a wireless - I hope you have a set. Then at 4.15 today - I was out on the hillside with Miss Spry - she put up the tea. Sandwiches, bully and some fresh lettuce she was able to scrounge! and some scones. We talked a lot about you all - she was wearing a nice brooch she said you had sent her.
Margery came along about 6 with a packet of cigarettes - she went off again as she had a party of young folks. Dora came later and gave me 2 packets and Mrs Fairburn (Constance Bonell) gave me 1 - that's been all my loot!
I bought a jelly powder at the canteen and some Carnation Cream - I made the jelly last night but of course it didn't "jell" - However I got it put into the Diet Kitchen "frig" and it came out splendidly. I sliced a banana and put the bits on top. - and we had coffee and biscuits. Rosie Spry came too - I just asked her this afternoon - and Wynne-Jones came across to return my frying pan so he stayed too! Last year we had pate de fois gras but the jelly was lovely. It is now 8.45 - 11.45am with you - perhaps you're in Church - more likely seeing to the tiffin at home. How I long to be with you. I'm feeling much better - my "spruey" mouth is nearly gone. So Cheero Darling
