I am feeling really well again.
It has not rained for weeks & the ground, which is clay, is all cracks: I lost an arrow head in one of them.
Solace the kitten was given a collar with a bell; caught a huge mouse & chased it round the sitting room for hours. (The bell was off temporarily).
Talked with Laura about the 'emancipation of possessions'1.
