This week I've been thinking about the election and how I was going to vote. For many years I voted for a party rather than a candidate. I had very strong views as to which party best represented my views and was less bothered about who the actual person was that was standing. Over the last two elections however I have looked more closely at the person who was standing and given my vote to the person that I thought would best represent me in parliament. This has meant voting for a party that I never thought I would support because I was most convinced by their candidate.
And now it's all over for another five years and I can stop thinking about manifestos, candidates policies, local versus national issues etc etc. Time for a cup of tea and a lie down!
