18th February 1944: first beef for weeks... roses & snow

18 Fri. Raw cold, dismal, fitful skies, snow all day, but did did not lay till evening. Miss Brewer still does the house cleaning on Friday mornings. Did all the usual hopping locally, and the butcher let us have beef this week - first time for many weeks. Dug up the Betty Upwick and (?) rose, pruned the roots and re-planted it in a deeply dug bed with garden refuse placed deeply below it. This bush has never done well, so I shall be interested to see the result of the change.
