Mild with some nice sunshine in morning. Rain and high wind late at night and a surprising rise in temperature. Alb (Fred's brother) called in morning: he has a weeks holiday. I went for a walk with him round the local roads. Did shopping morning and afternoon. Alb and Lily came again in evening. A surprise visit from Mr.and Mrs.Hippel; first time they have been here; they brought some lovely Cox's Orange apples, home grown in their garden in Amity Grove.
