September 7th/8th 1973

• “Back to work – Ward not vere, but still out on bike”
• “Ward still not at work. Quite cushy day xcept for all the work”

“Cushy” is a very English word.

It means “easy” or “simple”.

Its derivation is actually Army slang. We imperialists stole it from the people of India.

“Khush” is the hindustani world for “pleasant”

For some reason, Londoners (“Cockneys”) generally add a ‘t’ to the word, turning it into “Cushty” or “Kushty”

As in: “This diary entry has been kushty ‘cos I haven’t had to write much
