"When I look around I see that everyone is the protagonist of their own story."
“I have noticed that if you look carefully at people’s eyes the first five seconds they look at you, the truth of their feelings will shine through for just an instant before it flickers away.”
14th May 1940
I’ve been working at the farm here now for two months.
I miss home, I miss me mum’s cooking - even with the rations she still managed to make it taste half-way decent. Mrs Nelson is a sweetheart, but she’s not much of a cook. I feel sorry for Finn having to eat food that tastes like this for the majority of his life.
I do not miss me mum’s shouts up the stairs for me to go and get stuff from the pantry. We don’t even have a pantry - its just a little cupboard to the side of the kitchen that we also hang the clothes to dry when it gets to winter.
Finn is lovely though, all of us girls think so. Chloe and Izzy are hopelessly in love with him, sighs escape their lips every time he takes his shirt off while he’s doing work in the fields.
It’s hard work this tending the land stuff - harder then I thought, still, I’m never one to shy away - especially when there’s a war on. Gotta do my bit for King and Country.
