Newcastle United defeated West Ham United 4-0 on the telly and Steve Davis won some snooker tournament. Apart from all this it was 'an awful boring day.' Still, December tomorrow.
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.
A nice day today weather-wise. After life saving this morning, I suffered for the rest of the day with a headache, despite which, I did win at pool - my opponent potted the black.
I was still wearing just the one contact lens at this point in time, and today it was giving me some fierce gyp. But why didn't I go to the opticians? Mmm, I dunno.
No mention of tests - just water polo and pool. The life and times eh?
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.
On BBC1 this afternoon, no goals in the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park. The weather was a little windy, but at least there was no rain. Tomorrow would see the start of test week at sixth form. Oh dear...
Australia's Rugby League team finished their series against GB with a 24-15 victory, thus making it a 3-0 whitewash. Shrewsbury achieved a 1-1 draw at Roker Park.
A slow day - no reference to dodgy 12" singles, the weather, the word 'boring' or football today. Just a comment re doing some Christmas shopping next week.
