Felt remarkably good today. Felt even better when a nice young tradesman came and installed wifi ! Sat in my nightie till 10:00 when it came on. So wonderful to be able to contact Willow, then James and finally sent mail to all the others. Jazz people fighting and whinging again, so sent replies. Did my washing and put it out on the line. Then we went to Angeliques. Again such warm greetings. I hadn't seen their house for 8 years, but ...
Had a relatively good sleep for me. However deathly tired all day. Managed to wash my hair and then we were off to Roos house by 9:30. Aunty Hennie bought her flowers on the way.

Went to sleep ...

Slept till 8:00. Beautiful day. Finally got my washing done and hung it out on a swirling clothesline, thanks to the wind. Walked around the garden with Tante ...
