My dearest Belinda, Paul and all my lovely Darlings,
Well, here I am and I'll start making those notes! :) When on the phone, I so often forget odds and ends. Never mind, I can write those bits.
I phoned Auntie Corry and she said, she felt a lot better now. She has decided not to have anymore operations. She said, she likes to enjoy feeling better. Praying is far better than operations. I gave her your love and she sends all her love to you all!

Today, 52 years ago, you were christened in the Caterham Barracks Chapel, with real Water from the Jordan. I was due to go to Holland, but I felt I had to gave you christened before we went. I explained this to the pastor, so he made it special for me! He had a bottle of Jordan water, he'd brought back, when he was there during the war...
...My writing is not too tidy as my pad is on my lap, but I'm sure you can read it alright. I have to make an impression tomorrow at the dentist. A start for a new set of teeth. He said last week that my set was rather worn :) (17 years.)
To be continued.
