"Marjorie slept with me last night upstairs.
When I came down this morning I went to work early and I found the fire lit by Dad who had been up all night with Mum, Mrs Crow, Mrs Cox and the doctor.
Hughes hit me on the jaw today for practically nothing so as I was not well and was sick (blood as well) Mr tate let me go home at 2 o'clock. when I came home I saw a little baby sister in Mum's bed!
Weather: - Dull and overcast. showery all day. No sunshine. Moderate wind.
