My Dearest Jock,
Well here it is the beginning of another lonely month for the both of us, & many more like us. I just hope that it doesn’t go by too slowly. I suppose that it is better to think that another month has ended, rather than another one beginning, which means that we are one month closer to being together Darling.
I eventally got around to writting to Mum & Dad to-day. I guess that, that is a good thing about me not feeling well, as I can catch up on some letter writting when I don’t feel up to doing any work.
I was telling you about yesterdays strong winds in last night’s letter, well to-day the wind has been even stronger & even though it was very windy yesterday, it wasn’t very cold, but to-day has been quite cold & we have had a bit of snow & rain with the wind, & to-night I had to put the electric heater on as well as the stove & the wood heater. Even though that electric heater doesn’t get very hot it has made a difference to the room temperature.
Remember I told you in one of my letters that I had lost my copper ring, well I found it the other day, I remember now that I took it off one day when I was washing my hair in the shower, & I put it on the middle shelf of the soap rack in the shower, & I found it the other day, when I put my washer on the same shelf & then when I picked my washer up the ring fell down so I hadn’t lost it after all, it was just my absent mind that had forgotten where I had put it.
Well Corpral how are things going for you? I hope you are doing well in your new position.
I miss you very much Darling & I am always thinking about you. To-day I was thinking about the first time we met, & I had my hair in rollers. It’s funny how things work out isn’t it? I didn’t like the idea of going down town with my hair in rollers that day, but if I hadn’t have, we wouldn’t have met, & we have Slim & Rennie to thank for that. But most of all I thank God. I always thank God for giving you to me, as you are the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to me, & you are my whole life & I love you very, very much. The boys are always thinking of you too & they are always talking about you, like to-day, when Brian didn’t want to eat his dinner John said to him, “if you don’t eat up your dinner you won’t grow a big boy, & when we grow big boys Daddy is going to take us out in the bush & teach us to use our gun, Bert gave us.” Well I must close for now my love, hopeing this finds you well, & may God Bless & Protect you,
