Shopped for food, buying reduced beef burgers and apple juice. Saw postman, wishing well with strike, saying encouraging for me and others, and discussing general political situation.


Lunch : beefburgers in a bun; salad. Spoke friend. Scaffolders outside window warned me about proximity of end of lateral to kitchen window pane. Tied handle to tap to restrict opening.


Tea : plums; black tea.
