17.1.40

No thaw. A little snow in the night, making about 1 inch depth. Last night seemingly the hardest frost of all, as even the village pump was frozen. Snow very dry & crunchy. Dung in the hen houses frozen quite hard, so broke this up & scattered on another strip, which will do for beans or peas.

5 eggs. Sold 25 @ 3/6 score.

    Colchester certainly had snow. Where is he?

  2. Yup, the price of eggs is definitely down again, from a high of 4/4 score.

    Thanks for the link to Rudsdale’s diary – it’s a a very interesting read. I wish Orwell would provide more detail about his activities and reflections.

    Orwell does not seem to be getting as much snow there in Wallington, where he currently resides as compared to the data contained in the reportage from Colchester. Use your favorite web map app [or click here] to see their relative locales.

  5. Thank you for all your kind comments on the Rudsdale Diaries – it is much appreciated. I am delighted to have gained this link with the Orwell Diaries as the two diaries seem to complement each other very well and I enjoy reading all your comments and insights. Thank you again.

    If you don’t mind my saying so, these diaries seem very dull to me. Where on earth is the political content?
