Wednesday 30th November 1938

Three decent orders, three cheques, today. Called in to see Joan (confined to her room with chicken pox of all things!) at midday.

Evening: after some difficulty I eventually took that third cheque. (Account of two decorators who are dissolving partnership.) It needed two signatures; I rushed out to Rochford for the second name. I’d been getting anxious about that account!

When everyone else had gone to bed, whilst I waited for my bath water (in the copper!) to heat, I lit my pipe, spread a map of Essex on the table, and pondered where I would “dig” when I left Eastwoodbury.
