Dear Nell
I received the ticket a couple of days ago but no luck 10 off £10, any way love it was nice to think you hadn’t forgotten me & that meant a lot, I do hope you are feeling much better & that the children are well, this weather is playing up with Jeff Von & myself we all have that pain down the arm & hand, theirs has eased off but mine is really old age etc, Could be worse off I suppose, I just watched Tommy Hanlon & it was very sad, any way I better get moving & get some lunch for Von, she took the washing up Town to the new machines & can do it for a few shillings (wash & dry) so why worry doing it here when the weather is so bad for drying, You must have had quite a bit of fun at weekend with them all. I had a few here & played rummy etc. Now I really get off write soon & love to you all
Mum
