Everyone in a flap when I got to school because of the exam, especially Lucy - she hadn't even begun on 'Strife'!

At 10 to 2 we had to go to Z2, and the torture began. Except it wasn't as bad as I'd expected. The 'Macbeth' question was the worst of them as it was a character one, but for 'Lord of the Flies' I wrote exactly what was in the introduction, practically word for word - so lucky I looked at it! A pity I did all the revision I did.

Waited for 45 minutes at the office for Daddy, which I was jolly annoyed about. We finally left at 5.30, and he told me that Israel and Egypt began war today - I don't think anybody thought it would be so soon. It was very hot in the car, but those back lanes are exceptionally green at this time of year. 

In bed I read a jolly good article in the New Statesman on the Beatles’ LP. It describes the record as “art of a subtle kind” and that all the different songs are related because they’re all about loneliness. The best song is A Day in the Life and they say the BBC’s ban on it is stupid - "the original tune remains so innocent and the (electrophonic) trip is so disturbingly scary.” What’s so annoying is I’ve got the whole record but I haven’t got the time to play it.

Oh dear, my Diary gets more boring every day. I haven't any emotions to write about or anything, it’s ghastly. I can't go on about Dutronc every day, well I could, but I’d run out of things to say. 

It was marvellous last year when there was Finkelstein to spend hours on every night.
