Wednesday 16th April 1936

Spent my last penny at 6.30, on my way from the works, in buying an evening paper. (Mussolini presents his peace terms; Abyssinia rejects them. The Abyssinian army is now “almost completely destroyed” says Italy.)

Borrowed 6d from Mrs Stephens and indulged in a packet of cigarettes. (Can’t go without my smokes!) Told her I’d soon be moving to Ealing. A large notice is in the window here, telling that there are “apartments within”.

Does me good to be hard up again. Otherwise I might take for granted my affluent and comfortable state!
