16th August 1948
We had a family picnic in the garden today when Father announced he was going to build a Hob house! Mother thought he was being ridiculous and that the family story of Great, Great, Grandmother Lilla was not true! Father was upset and told her that he saw the Hob as real as she was to him! I think it is a marvellous idea and discussed where the Hob house is going to be built. We concluded the large grass area adjacent to the vegetable garden is perfect!
