Feb 17th Thursday

A mad day: a plumber came to inspect my smelling wainscote. And then again two Electric men for the leak in the kitchen, which they would not touch, so the plumber again who fetched a mate and had the kitchen linoleum & floorboards up. Also a telephone man to repair the extension; and Miss Story, and the plumber had trouble with a pipe in the lavatory. All this time it was raining. Then drying out the linoleum spread with gadgets against the kitchen wall.
Proofs of Belisarius, also a little Trojan Ending. Bed at two.
Fixed the Verge clock.
