In afternoon for 20 minutes out & bought a nacre necklace in Church Street Market (1/-1). Mary Lucy came & while she was talking – she is going back to Ireland on the Catholic-separation plan – I threaded two necklaces, using the nacre and two other dullish necklaces I had broken up (I gave one to Jenny, one to Marie)
