No tummy-ache thank God, just the back-of-waist pains.

At dinner break Anya and me went for an ambulare. I was dragging her along, for some strange reason, and she was sort of stooping forward, densely, when suddenly she said, "I feel like a LADY POODLE!" I was in fits. So I called her ‘Whimpsy’ and continued to drag her along – we looked ridiculous!!!

In the evening Pa picked on Mummy for being aggressive, which this time was quite unfair. I think he must be tired.

I read in Vogue an interesting article by Cecil Beaton about how women's hair styles and make-up change so quickly now. It really is extraordinary. Compared to Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton already looks old-fashioned.

The Stones have got to appear at Chichester courts on May 10th because Mick and Keith are charged with being in possession of drugs. If they're found guilty they'll have to break up, I suppose.

Of the March raid at Keith Richards’ house, the senior CID  officer famously said:

“The woman [Marianne Faithfull] had wrapped around her a light-coloured fur rug which from time to time she let fall showing her nude body. Sitting on her left was Jagger, and I was of the opinion he was wearing make-up. Sitting on her right was a person I now know to be male but at the time I had thought was a woman. He had long fairish hair and was dressed in what would best be described as a pair of red and green silk 'pyjamas'. I searched him and this was all he was wearing. I formed the opinion he too was wearing make-up. All the time I was in the house there was a strong, sweet, unusual smell in all rooms."

Although most of the drugs were found on hanger-on ‘Acid King’ David Schneiderman, the police failed to search his aluminium attaché case - in effect, a mobile dispensary said to contain "dope, cocaine and hundreds of hits of white lightening."
