23. Eileen there, wouldn't speak. Finally told me she didn't love me anymore. I'll take a long time to forget her.

24. Maxine's Southport, cancelled. Rory and I went to see Shane Fenton at Majestic.

26. Holyoake, no bass or drums. Majestic, then Iron Door (all-nighter) at 2. Eileen was there with Phil, I felt lousy, did great show though, Ron and I left at 6.

29. Went to Eileen's. We do love each other.
