Monday 23rd January 1939

Southend district. No orders. Last week was the worst for turnover since Christmas week, 1937.

Went to Margaret Goddard’s this evening and had an hours tuition in waltz, slow fox-trot, palais glide and the new “Chesnut Tree”. Went straight from there to the CHA Social at Newbery’s. Several party games. Unfortunately all the dances were old ones – i.e. the valeeta and the barn dance, of which I knew nothing. However I was able to take the floor once – and for the first time with Lois – for the final waltz.
Could not remember any of the steps I’d been taught, except the reverse, but scraped through alright.
