Tuesday 23rd February 1943

Another day gone, another day nearer home.

Dammit, I did not sleep again last night. I just cannot sleep. Why? I did not take my rest today so that maybe I shall be able to sleep tonight . Instead I opened and wiped and sorted out 800 oranges and 400 grapefruit. I ate exactly 3 oranges and 2 grapefruit.

I have got a gathering under my right thumb nail. I am writing this between my middle fingers. Jove, it does pain me, I wonder if it is a whitlow.

Chippy is coming along at 8 o'clock to play crib with me. That will be quite a change to the usual routine. Last night I sorted out my presents. I do not know how I am going to get some of them through the customs.
