GH came to lunch and we had a very pleasant and interesting talk before and after on the loggia. Anne took Sarah to lunch at a Lyons Corner House. She went out morning and evening to fit Grattan's coat which is being altered for her.

Mabel slept here

Anne went to Soho in the morning for spaghetti and Sarah and I went to Selfridge's to buy a meat pie for Wenham and an ice brick for lunch. Also some sandwich tins for my birthday present for Lil, but I left them in the bus on the way back. I tracked to Cricklewood and Willesden after lunch, vainly trying to retrieve them.

Anne and Sarah left after tea to catch the 5.30 train to Wenham. Mabel arrived about 6 o'clock. We sat out on the loggia after supper. The only cool spot.

Hotter than ever and Mabel and I felt quite exhausted. 84 in her bedroom. In the morning we did some local shopping but did not stir out again till I watered the petunias etc after supper.
