12th August 1948
Father came in from weeding the garden looking a little perturbed. He proceeded to say he thought he had seen Hob! Unsure what a Hob is, Father began to explain many years ago his Great, Great, Grandmother Lilla found a creature while walking in her garden. At first sight, Lilla picked it up, noticing it had a face, hands and feet like a human=being. As Lilla was studying it the creature opened its eyes! They were rumours at the time that little people lived in the woods the locals called Hobs although Lilla did not know anyone who had seen a Hob!
The family cared for the Hob who they believed to be female even teaching words so they could-
communicate. The Hob picked up English very quickly and it was not long before the Hob had become a fond member of the family. The Hob wanted to go back to the woods to teach the other Hobs what she had learned. Lilla left the Hobs food and other items in the garden and the Hobs would leave Lilla flowers in return.
I think this is the most exciting diary entry I have ever written!
