A milder day: quite calm + fresh but dispersing the snow very slowly. By evening there was none in the park but it was still lying on the hay shed roof. I cycled for the first time since Jan. 5. The roads were very muddy. I went to Tower Street, Glebe Terrace, Kilncroft, Beechwood, Magdalen Cott.1, Dunsdale, Hospital, Mavisbank = 6.4 miles. Got some work done at books + house accounts. When I have everything paid that I owe at present I shall only have £4 odd left. but I have as yet drawn nothing of 1921-22.
