Sunday 2nd September 1990

Feeling much better as I set the sprinklers to water the garden and tended the swimming pool which was sadly still too full of chlorine residue to be safe for the girls to swim. Di took Debbie to Staughton and then joined me in tending Dad’s grave ahead of Mum’s visit. Daniel went off to work again and the girls cooked some cakes as Di and I sorted out some of the rooms so that they could be used and I was occupied printing out my electronic diary.

I woke up feeling much better than yesterday and managed to tend my fish and conservatory plants before breakfast. It was a fine English breakfast that Diana had cooked superbly and was much appreciated by all of us. Daniel was even slower to rise than usual. He had gone on from his evening job to go bowling in Peterborough until the early hours. This morning, I worked a little at my desk and then set out the sprinklers to water the garden and tended the swimming pool. The chemical level that was needed to clear the poor has left residues which are still too strong to allow the children to safely swim yet which is a pity. Diana had taken Debbie to Staughton and, once she had put the lunch on, she joined me for a trip to the cemetery to attend my Dad’s grave.

Saturday 1st September 1990

Sadly the journal entries for this day in September 1990 have been lost due to data corruption. 

The period marked the completion of the Norfolk Broads trip on family boat The Paxton Princess and the return to work on The Hayling View in Little Paxton and to my responsibilities as Huntingdonshire District Councillor for Little Paxton, Southoe and Diddington.
