The forecasters said we'd have a sunny October: they weren't wrong. I wonder whether their prophesy of a particularly cold and snowy winter will prove as accurate.
We were watching the first part of The Deathly Hallows last night. It says a lot for the grip that Harry Potter had (still has?) on the collective imagination that such a relentlessly gloomy- nocturnal and wintry- movie should have been a box office success.
