Fine, but cold. Sad, & depressed. ―

Rose at 6. They are new=fronting the house (No. 10) opposite so the noise wakes me. There was “also” sunbeams. (One has not been badly off for sun this year.)

Painted all day at the Janina ― not very well ―but not very badly. At 6 ― came Mrs. Douglas Galton & Mrs. Cameron Galton.

Hem.

Dined alone at 7.30.

& wrote a bit afterwards.

But it is now, 10.30, ― ὰς εἶναι καιρός νὰ πηγαίνω εἰς τὸ κρεββάτι μου.[1]


[1] It’s time for me to go to bed (NB).
