Dairying is a dirty business and our dairy is rather small for all it must hold. We always wear clogs there. I do not know what we should do without them when the floor is so wet and dirty; and in winter weather, the modern sole keeps the feet quite warm when you must stand for an hour or two on cold, wet flags.
I must own to a neglect of duty. It is my business to make the tea but to-day my writing was left till very late and they are sitting at their tea while I finish my scribbling in time for the post.
