Thursday 10th February 1938

After a period of financial comfort – expenses suddenly increase! Next week £4-10-0 for car instalment.15/10 is now due for income tax. Shirts are getting shabby, shoes need repair. Today I spent 25/- on a new car tyre.

Oh, I’m not “broke” of course. Have £3 in my wallet now and several pounds in the Bank. Ties are getting shabby. The nib of my fountain pen is broken… One damn thing after another! And to crown it – the Battered and Ancient Zephyr is not in good trim!
A certain slowness in acceleration and feebleness in climbing. Change down twice when ascending Pier Hill – with a running start! “Maybe, she wants decarbonising” said the engineer hopefully.
