A big day out today - went into town on the bus at 20 minutes to eleven.  There was a traffic jam for a whole quarter of an hour - oooooooooooooh!  Liverpool beat Coventry City 2-0 at Anfield whilst at Gay Meadow, Hull City lost 3-0.  In the second test at the WACA, Perth England finished their 1st innings on 592-8 dec.  The match was ultimately drawn leaving England 1 up in the 5 match series.

We had a very efficient Maths teacher, and accordingly, our results were delivered this morning.  On the face of it, I was quite chuffed, having managed 60%.  But then after we went through the paper, I realised that carelessness cost me 28%.  I celebrated / commiserated by throwing myself in a largish body of open water - unclothed apart from my swimming trunks.

Maths was first with a test - no comment made about how I got on.  I think that fact that the teacher gave us homework was too much of a shock for anything else to register.  In Industrial Studies I had a sleep.  I say again, if it was so bad, why did I persist with it?  Surely, this was my chance to realisezzzzzzzzzzzz...

In the afternoon, Physics too dealt us a test.  'Was it hard?' I asked. 'Yes, very bloody hard' came the reply.  Oh dear.
