A nice day clearing away to a hard frost at night. There were frozen places on the roads + at Linglie but mostly they were heavy. I was glad to be able to cycle to Cannon Street, Sunderland Hall, Lowood + back to Wellwood for Xmas lunch at 1. I was feeling seedy however + did not enjoy it. The children were all very happy. H [Helen Muir] + I dined at Elmpark. Erskine1 was there also Jack, Nancy, Barbara + Jack2.
