Sat in LPQ having a modest breakfast of half a baguette & pot of tea while catching up on the LRB. The three tributes to Karl Miller are as inspiring as they are moving.

.

Car back from its recall by Renault. It seems there was indeed a brake issue. (& ... fingers crossed ... I think they've solved the creak).

.

The routine clearing & sorting of books that have accumulated on the various shelves, surfaces & tables since the last holiday. How I - we - suffer from my piles. A happy find is Thomas A. Clark's Distance & Proximity which includes the wonderful In Praise of Walking. I'd been searching for that.

.

Add to the list:

Earl Grey tea in the tin; oranges; cardboard; & what might be a bonfire ...

.

5:40 pm & already the light fading.

It seems my crystal ball was not so grubby ... ... resisting the temptation to say "told you so".
