Sept 2 Friday

To Rennes in afternoon after a morning's housework and picking nuts in the grounds with Petit Henri.
Bought a pair of fire-dogs 35 francs, & a large mat, for 115 francs and a shabby screen for Laura (80fr [FRANCS]) to be repapered.
Anita still very sick.
Invented a game with Beryl called 'Cambelpuk1' played with solitaire board2.
Laura working late on proofs. No-no3 nearly killed the black kitten.
Autumn beginning: apples dominate landscape.
