1st in Lent.
Breakfast very enjoyable at the Hollywood and at 12 we were back in the bar drinking again. Disgusting really.
Read in the Sunday papers about poor Spike Milligan's wife, who died last week from cancer.
By 3:00pm we were all eating once again, and at 5 we were on the road home. Coming over the Pennines the weather became evil and foul. Cannot imagine going to Rawtenstall tomorrow if it persists.
Felt tired from the exertions but thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Lynn, Dave, Sue and Pete seem happy too.
Phoned Chris tonight and he thinks the trip planned for tomorrow can still go ahead. I have to contact him in the morning. He has decided that Jacq and I will be getting married. __________.
Took a long needed plunge in the bath. I think I'm giving up on Edward VI. The book has become too deeply involved in church affairs of the 1550s for my liking. I like a biography to be more personal. 'El Dorado' by Baroness Orczy is the only book I have left. A sad thing it is.
