31st March 1962


Went to the Ilford Palais this evening.  That place is becoming a home-from-home for us.  It will always be something special as it was where we met.

Alan had a headache so we didn’t stay very long.  I was in a good mood and was fooling around.  He put that down to the ONE drink I had and said, ‘no more drinks for you’.  Pompous so-and-so!

Dad’s 47th birthday yesterday so we made a fuss of him when he got home from work.

Mum and I went to the Ideal Home Exhibition last Monday.  It’s not often Mum and I go out, just the two of us.  I had booked the day off work for it.  It was a long train journey across London to Olympia and the exhibits were over such a vast area we were tired and had aching feet after a few hours.  But still Mum didn’t want to go home.  She enjoyed it.


I suppose I did too.  There was so much to see.  There were display ‘houses’ set up to show off new design furniture.

  And the strangest gadgets were demonstrated.  I liked the seats that moved and vibrated so you didn’t have to get out of your chair to get a massage.  My type of exercise!
