Thursday 27th January 1916

The wind still blowing strong from the E. After breakfast I went down for the mail, worked a little in the flower garden between the showers.

The afternoon & evening were very showery. I did not go down in the evening for the mail & c. There was to have been a dance as a send off for George James, who has joined the expeditionary force and is going down to Trentham to be drilled, but on account of the rain it did not come off.
