Slept in, yay! From now on this will be a luxury. Went to Bentleigh on foot with C, withdrew all but $5 from the bank and bought a second hand telephoto lens. Walked home sucking on our Sunnyboys (the ice block not the group). Did I write this?
Drama in the evening. CIT Union Night with Typists and Corrections. I wanted to go but not with C and D or C, D and E. Always the gooseberry or the spinster chaperone, felt miserable. To make matters worse mum wouldn’t let C go without me. Ghastly guilt and pity for my miserable situation. C didn’t even ask what was wrong. Phoned Lee, would have wanted to go with her, but not home.
