10th April 1944: so, this was my 'holiday'!

10 Easter Monday. Mild, rather heavy clouds but some nice peeps of sunshine in between; still a rather rough, chilly wind. Went out to buy some sweets in afternoon. Sawed up a lot of the ash* branches for firewood. Mrs. Akroyd came to tea. Did some general work in the garden in evening. Short cycle ride to finish up the day. Not much like a holiday.

Note: ash is seen as one of the best hardwoods to burn in domestic fires,  giving a good red glow, lasting longer, not sparking or smoking too much (so cleaner chimneys) and leaving little ash. The third most common tree in Britain. Read about ash trees here, with the Woodland Trust
