January 1st Month 1918

1 Tuesday
Time lags The beginning of a New Year. Twas heralded in for us by the sound of shells from the enemy and the sounds of our guns retaliating. All the Sisters stayed up but me – And Matron said this morning that Australia should have been represented but I was a bit homesick and got out some old letters and re-read them. I was tired too. Then the shelling kept waking me – And my cough was troublesome, and and I didn't take Mrs. Wiggs advice - Sit on the bed & smile but got sorry for myself & cried a bit - So the beginning of 1918 is not a promising omen for Anne.
