… Horrid heavy grey day, and the cat has got three of our first baby blackbirds …(Diary, 2/6/88)

June 2nd Thursday. Ruth this morning and for lunch – Sheila did a splendid one, while Joan did sewing for me – fair division of labour. Geraldine looked in for tea, & has been summoned to appear in court about knocking that girl off her bicycle, and feeling rather flummoxed about it. Horrid heavy grey day, and the cat has got three of our first baby blackbirds! The fourth has survived, & parents are looking after it: Ray is going to put it in the garage for the night, for safety’s sake.
