After spending most of the day thinking about what to say to Michael re writing to Alan, it was a great relief when he went home without mentioning the subject at all. Maybe it was for the best that he didn’t because I still don’t know what to say or, which is more important, what to do.
I knew Michael was to go on holiday with his parents soon but tonight I found out the dates – the 6th to 13th May. That means he will be away for my birthday. I must have looked disappointed when he told me as he offered to take me to see the film ‘South Pacific’ as a birthday present. A terrific idea. I was very pleased.
