26th Apr 1986

Saturday.
Played cricket in our P.E. lesson today! It was horrible ‘cos I got a cricket ball in the face!!!!! 2.00pm: Went swimming with “Crusaders”. 5:30pm: Watched “Comic Relief” on the video which I taped last night!!! 7.30m: Watched “The Price is right!!!!!”

It’s official – cricket is bad for your health. Cricket ball + face = pain.

Other news today – An explosion at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian SSR released large quantities of radioactive contamination into the atmosphere, which spread over much of Western Russia and Europe. You may remember it. At the time I must have been so engrossed with Leslie Crowther shouting “Come on down – The Price is Right” that news of one of the worst nuclear disasters in history didn’t really compute.

There were several clips about Chernobyl which I could have chosen but they were all far too depressing so here ‘s Billy Connolly from the 1986 Comic Relief instead. Much more fun.
