Having worked out that it had been 10 months since we were last out alone together, BM and B husband have just spent an entire weekend socialising every night.  Time was when that was not so unusual but life has changed a lot over the past 10 years or so, with the result that today, BM is very very tired.

Tired but unrepentant actually.   Chances are it may be another 10 years before BM indulges in such a weekend again and all things considered, it turned out much better than anticipated.  Friday night, Alan Bennett play, Saturday Mayor's Ball and last night, dinner with Simon H and campaign team at Cafe Amisha, along the road.  Quite a few of the team including B husband were fresh from the special conference in Birmingham and full of praise for Simon's barnstorming speech.  Lots of wine, food, more speeches and laughter followed with people reflecting almost in disbelief, on the events of the past 7 days.     Even though there is understandable concern about the future, there is genuine excitement about seeing LibDem manifesto pledges materialise into government policy.

But for BM right now, it's time for nurofen and an early night...
