till 11-30 on Thursday night. What a thrill it would have been if they had won, all the same they did jolly well. When they arrived they came into my room and had tea, with the result I simply couldn’t sleep after it. We went to the Races yesterday. Oh what a day. Mud up to our ankles, & Hector & I did not have a collect all day. But all the same it was great fun – Judy went up to Whakakino (?) on Friday after golf she relieves on Tuesday. Then goes to a case at 8.30 on Wed mornings. The child never seems to be at home these days. But she is happy so why worry?
