June 22 Wednesday. Nice peaceful day with no visitors. Ray had his girlfriend to lunch.
Rosemary Sutcliff never turned visitors away, but as previous diary entries have suggested, they could have a major impact on her writing. So peaceful days were very welcome. An entry like this implies that, provided Rosemary was not feeling “muzzy headed”, she would have enjoyed being free to immerse herself in her writing. Visitors were a two-edged sword.
