A lovely bright day + warm till the evening when it became clouded + after dinner there was some thunder + it rained on till I went to bed at 10. I was feeling seedy + dyspeptic probably from the beer I had at dinner last night. I spent the forenoon in the field next the hotel basking in the warm sun + reading. After lunch I wrote May [Lindsay1] + David Ingles2 + Helen + did not go out again. Nancy + Timmy3 just loafing about.
