WEDNESDAY 21 MAY ADELS GROVE
Our day off. Just lazed about the place. That bloody generator was still a major annoyance. We have made a case to the boss to move down to the Grove, when cook leaves. He was considering the request. There would be more staff coming in later, but we reckon it is our turn!
Mail plane day. I received my newspaper and a parcel of extra wool that I’d asked daughter to send, so I could finish the cot blanket.
There was a letter from my friend M, who planned to come and visit us in July – a really exciting prospect, to show this place off to a friend. My letter to her about this had crossed in the mail, so at night I phoned her to clarify some points.
The truck came in mid-afternoon. Nup – not going to go help unload. It was our time off!
