Tuesday May 31st

Feeling all right: but stiffness in side developed as day went on.
At Church St bought some pale blue beads for 4d1: made a necklace for Laura with some small gold; and a blue Bristol 'ash-tray' for 3d.
Margaret in evening
Alan in afternoon
Norman at night
Laura never got round to working with me: both of us taking several medicines.
