19th July 1951


This job is burning me up! If I don’t tell George soon I’m scared there won’t be anymore openings left. I know it’s just a small start but at least it is a start and I am determined to work in fashion now. I want a career! I can’t spend all my time at home, I just can’t! I’m not like Mother's friends. This is a new age now, and girls like me need to get out into the real world!

I nearly brought it up this morning, as George was in a good mood, but he had to dash off for work before I got the courage to say anything. I’ll try to say something tonight. I’m seeing Frank this afternoon, I sure he’ll give me the strength I need. I always feel feel able to do anything when I'm with him.
