May 30th Monday. Another Bank Holiday! Yesterday’s wind got up again. The pups have spent the whole day yelling to be let out & chasing squirrels. Betty S came in for a while, chiefly to catch Sheila for a chat this morning. Think I see my way out of the immediate Catraeth problem, though there are still plenty ahead.
The “Catraeth problem”, which is a rare diary comment about her work-in-progress, first surfaced in Rosemary Sutcliff’s diary on 28/8/88. It relates to a battle which features in her novelThe Shining Company.
