Last night, or rather this morning, to bed around 4 a.m. and heard the first bird – a cuckoo. No euphoric haze of re-election because all three of the LibDem councillors standing for re-election were wiped out – as were many others across the country. In our case, the Council now stands at 56 Conservatives and 1 Independent. Whatever your political colour, you might agree it doesn’t sound too good for democracy.
A few nice people have contacted us this morning and we – husband and self – are taking a few days’ mini-break. Then on with the rest of our lives: there will be more time for writing now.
