LIFEBOAT FLAG HILARITY
M O N D A Y, 1 3 M A R C H
I had terrible rheumatic type pains along the back of my waist all morning. Got so worried about it I couldn't stop shaking.
Anya and me had the Latin exam in Room B. We had decided to do four coughs if we found the exam impossible, three if we found it ghastly, and one if we liked it. We both did two. It was a relief to have it over.
At six o'clock Chump and me set off down Duffield Road with the lifeboat flags to collect for Lifeboat Day. Chump rang the bells and knocked the knockers, while I did the talking. Nearly everyone had dogs!! We pressed the bell and a WOOF WOOF WOOF greeted us!!! I said, "we're collecting for Lifeboat Day - would you..." (that's as far as I ever got). Most people gave something, and the few that didn't were very nice about it. Sometimes we were killing ourselves, especially when we said "thank you" together. Finally we decided to say "thank you" only when they took the flag, and to say goodbye only if they said it first. It was hilarious.
Whenever I sit down the rheumaticky aches come back.
Panorama was on Syria and Israel - very interesting. Honestly, the Syrians are feeble, they're making a terrible fuss. It seems humanity is never content.
Bought some fab tights at Dorothy Perkins today. Only 12/11.
