The clocks were all put back to normal time last night. It was a fine clear morning + a lovely day, calm + sunny, E [wind]. Saw 6 town cases + cycled to Faldonside [where] Phyllis1 had a good day yesterday + no temperature. Walked up the side of the old wood + sat on a stump admiring the lovely view at the meeting of the rivers2. Baptie3 cut away the exuberant Jessamine which was darkening my room. Helen went with Nancy4 + Mrs Geo. Roberts5 to a concert at Gala.
