On Wednesday night I went to the lecture at the Mayer Trust on the subject "Graphology or Kidology" where the speaker explained some of the scientific principle behind it, explaining that it has nothing to do with astrology, palmistry or even divining from animal entrails.
The weekend saw the Birkenhead School Christmas fair, which seemed a very pedestrian affair compared with how I remember it in the old days. After that, we went home and dropped off some of our purchases before negotiating the unreliable bus services to arrive at the Odeon Bromborough for the Harry Potter movie. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. No spoilers. I felt that the plot was rather slow moving compared with the earlier movies, though overall the effect of the movie was as a positive experience. I didn't run screamng from the cinema shouting "I want my three hours back" and I have been known to do such in the past, in my imagination even if not in real life.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings have been very frosty: there was no thawing in some places. Was it always like this in England in November, or has my memory of cold been dulled these past fifteen years?
A double celebration in the rugby at the weekend, as New Zealand won (narrowly beating Angleterre) while Wales lost (to South Africa).
