Wednesday 5th March 1941: thousands of fragments

White morning frost, very cool day, but some sunny periods. Dear Mother's Birthday.** Dug up and transplanted the remaining gooseberry bush. Forked over that part of the garden, also the rhubarb bed. More work picking up the thousands of fragments of glass strewn over the garden. Wrote Dad*** a long letter: he is still at Tolworth.
Notes: ** Mother had been dead some years. ***Dad was currenly living with his other son, Albert, and Alb's his wife Lily, at Largewood Avenue, Tolworth.
On this day: Britain breaks off diplomatic relations with Bulgaria, given that German actions there show their intention to invade Greece.
