SATURDAY 16 OCTOBER HEALESVILLE
We went to the local shops for some groceries and the papers.
John went off to bowls at Lilydale.
I cleaned the van. Was still feeling poorly, and with a dry, ticklish cough, now. It has certainly been a virulent bug.
Phoned V. She arrived in Melbourne last Wednesday, after having a bout of food poisoning in Adelaide, and staying there for five days. She is going to her class reunion tonight. I had been under some pressure to go too – was quite close to that cohort of students – but asked her to explain that I was ill. She will come to lunch one day next week.
We had a very quiet night. There was no real improvement with the TV – it is hard to tell here, because of the mountains all around.
