We wake early here. Have corn flakes, boiled egg & bread and butter for breakfast. I feel much livelier this morning. Seem to do nothing but eat and drink here. Spend morning reading magazines. I have lovely dinner, milk to drink, too. Get paid £5 this afternoon, buy cigs, chocolate, blades. Nurse says I can get up awhile. Go pictures this evening, see " Champagne Charlie ", not much good. Have supper, meat loaf, lettuce, bread, butter, Horlicks, a liitle weak.
