Have decided to go on holiday in a week's time as had not a jot of holiday this year so far.
Said yesterday evening as to going away, Mrs Payne most excited, asked where we were going. Said was entirely uncertain where we were going, but was absolutely certain where she was going - nowhere. This taken most badly, said couldn't very well leave her, would positively starve on own.
Followed quite some silence treat, and bound to say thought this rather delightful. Silence soon ended however as opened sherry bottle, Mrs Payne said would like little tipple. Must remember to hide good sherry before go on holiday.
