6:05 When breakfast under way (see next), walk down driveway to retrieve

6:10 Sit down to breakfast–Quaker Oats, with a sprinkling of raisins, a
sliced-up banana and a splash of milk, plus a glass of orange juice. Read
newspaper while eating breakfast.
6:25 Walkies with Boris.
7:15 (approx.) S, s, and s.
7:30 (approx) Sit at desk. Power up computer. Read stuff I wrote

possible. It’s amazing how different a piece can look in the morning.)
