The fine weather hasn’t lasted long. Today was dull + sunless + with some drizzling showers. I started out motoring to Mellalieu, Nichol, Finney + some others + then up to Broadmeadows to see Adam Inch1 who returned from Edinburgh on Wednesday + is quite well. Then I got message to Parker’s which took me a while. Came back by Bannerfield. At 1.45 started for Lilliesleaf called at Humes: saw Mrs H but no messages + came back via Greenhill at 2.45. David’s car does go. Was not out again. Did some work at Income Tax returns. Robert Scott (son of Andrew, Mavisbank) came in late with Hemiplegia.
