Wednesday 2 May 1973

Ethel went to MCLM. The tube in the lounge went wonky. See Friday.


Ethel refers to grandma, Ethel May Cecilia Parkin.

MCLM refers to Mile Cross Ladies Meeting, see Chapter 107.

The reference to “the tube in the lounge” is to a very distinctive circular fluorescent light that grandma and grandad had there, see Chapter 93. An electrician, Mr Edwards came to replace it on Friday.

Wonky” was one of grandad’s favourite words to describe when something had gone wrong.
