The Diary of Montague Hardwick Knott, 1957 (11)

Friday 2.8.57

This has been a fairly uneventful day. […]

Have spent nearly all day sorting & packing my books. Have almost finished. After tea drove to B’m. The workmen are pressing on with the house now. All the upstairs rooms are plaistered & ready to start downstairs. The Sub-contractor says the carpenter is coming tomorrow & the painter next week.

Went to choir practice. Only four, beside Mr Simmons & me but I, for one, enjoyed it. Had a tedious journey home. A lot of traffic on the road doing a steady 30mph & running more or less bonnet to tail. H has been busy clearing cupboards & was tired. Looks like a nice day tomorrow.
