Thursday 13/8 One thing leads to another

A day which began with a delightful apple
tea and concluded with a delicious peaty
malt. In between, a veritable raft of
commissions were undertaken, from flyering
to messaging, from serving cakes to
swapping badges (although, of course, we
did not need any). A new map opened up
hitherto unreachable horizons, and a
chance encounter led to a butlerial
broadcast on national radio. A rather
wonderful Thornton Wilder play was seen,
and I became a temporary member of the
joyous Honorary Gentleman's Club. By the
end of it all, my feet ached like billy-o
but I retired most satisfied.
