Cold, but sunny. A late breakfast while
Dedham took itself to church. Left at 12, had a cup of tea and a sandwich
at Gunhill Café and went slowly to Boxted.
Called on the Roses’, who seemed glad to see me. Stayed to tea, and then took the old track
over the watermeadows to Higham, in the hope that Jacquie might be at the
cottage, but alas she was not. They have
moved back to either Portsmouth or Southampton.
Dedham, and spent a delightful evening in
talk and idle chatter – idle, but very pleasant.
