Saturday 17th February
Today the people are walking about with ease & comfort. When you meet anyone you know they greet you with "Well how do you feel? Isn't it a relief to think we can walk about without expecting to be knocked down by a 100 pounder!" All the stores are open and everyone is dressed up & gone out. If one had been doing penal servitude for a number of years the release would not have been greater then the relief we got last Thursday afternoon.
