Ap 9 Saturday

I had a dream of going to the war or something & leaving my passport behind; Laura in the next room a dream of finding that I had gone to the War & left my passport behind.
Solace1 to a nursing home: with suppressed cat flu and a septic throat.
In Church St Market an oval platter semi-Chinese 4d2, a stopper for the Dutch decanter 2d, an onyx with a fossil 1d, a brass Swiss cow-bell 3d.
Finished revised draft of Trojan Ending.
Laura went to bed early, tired out.
We read Mrs Sinnett's Byways of History3 to each other.
