10th February 1944: time-bomb & a new broom

10 Thur. Very cold, dull; wind of hurricane force, blizzard in evening but not quite cold enough to lay. Did not go out. Very heavy report and ground shock at 12.15 p.m. causing the house and windows to shake; probably a time bomb left over from a recent raid. Mr Norris showed me a large fragment having the appearance of a piece of bomb weighing many pounds; I do not know particulars. Fitted a new broom-head to existing stick.
