Some of you may remember the wartime diaries I came across in mother's attic back in 2009. I started posting the entries last year, but I let it fall by the wayside. Well I've now resurrected Blitz Diary, with each of Eileen Kelly's original diary entries being posted exactly 70 years to the day after she wrote them.
What I love most about the diary entries is how very normal life is, despite being set in central London at the height of the Blitz! Eileen's life is ordinary bordering on boring, with regular visits to the cinema and occasional dances - the sustained bombing barely merits a mention - but that's just part of the charm of the diary.
