We've all caught a cold so paddling round in our recent weather has been for ducks, not us. The car park on the mainland, always dicey, now has big pot holes full of water. So much fun! We canceled piano as they have been sick too & we don't want to share but went over early on Saturday so the girls & I could finally see Prince Caspian.

I'm still deciding about this movie. Yes...but what's with the *clever* dialogue? Hmmm, but I did like the character gaps in Lewis' book where I found the movie opened up some very interesting possibilities; such as the conflict in leadership between Peter & Caspian. I did not like the lovey~dovey stuff, not one little bit. Come to think of it, I don't like it in adult movies either. Liddy's the one for Romantic Comedy. And the thing that really bugged me: you stick a sword in someone, you get blood on your sword. It does not come out clean, not even in fantasy movies. Blood is small bickies besides other carnage in the movie.

And so on to Liddy's game. I don't even want to talk about it. It was disgusting. That the girl's lost 2~1 is nothing. The ref is on report. Our girls were really mouthing off in the end (not Liddy, thank goodness!). Mt Gravatt was shoving them 2 handed (sooo illegal it's not funny), ankle tapping them; there were elbows flying, & boots places they shouldn't have been. One of our midfield strikers has ankle problems & is really prone to injuries in that area & they kept tangling her feet. I thought her mother was going to have a connipitation. Then Liddy went down & just lay there flat on her back. I nearly died on the spot. I had visions of spending the rest of the evening at the hospital. The player marking her had jabbed an elbow up into her ribcage completely winding her. Then they took her out again & this time the coach was called on because Liddy was in tears. She thought she'd done her collar bone again. Same sort of fall. It was as rough as rough & Liddy was nearly hysterical when they finally came off. The coach called me into the dressing room & they got the club doctor to check her out but luckily most of it was purely & simply shock. Yuk, is all I can say.
