Today the UK is voting.
Where I live we are voting for 2 things:
Local council elections. Our local government has been in the same hands for a long time. I am voting for a guy who lives around the corner - a big guy who used to play rugby, and still coaches at local schools. I want to see what sort of a stir he causes in the council chambers.
Whether to use a different voting system for our main elections. This is the issue that the Liberal-Democrat party sold its soul for, backtracking on many election promises to get it. The old system isn't the best, but the proposed system doesn't seem to be a big improvement so I am voting for no change.
The big change has been my dad. We recently started cooking his main meal each day - it started with pizzas at weekends and then spread to all week. We have been feeding him lasagna, curry, macaroni-cheese, fish and chips, chicken casserole, etc, all in huge portions. He has been eating it all. And he has been feeling a lot better for it too! He has reclaimed his garden, trimmed a huge hedge to within an inch of its life and has now started joining us on evening dog walks! This being someone who not long ago was having trouble getting up and down stairs! Good stuff!
Revision for exams (which are next week and the week after) is difficult - work is busy and buy the time things are settled at home I am too tired to really concentrate. Having to rely on short bursts here and there. Hope some is sinking in!
