“I think people in British politics will be very pleased because they want a thirsting and thrusting Liberal Democrat party that’s out there making our distinctive case – and that’s what I’m getting on to do.” Charles Kennedy

Charlie, if I were you, I’d be downplaying the thirstyness.

Removal men

Spent this afternoon moving “the big stuff” for which we had professional help from two alarming looking teenagers. (Removal men aren’t supposed to be younger than me! They’re supposed to be reassuringly middle-aged, and wear boiler suits, not track suits. They’re supposed to have anecdotes about the Duchess’s pianner, not lengthy phone conversations about getting their X-boxes on the internet!)

The day is rapidly approaching when we take up residence in our new des res. I have to move and reduce my kitchen and P has to build the bed and clean the bathroom. (Don’t look at me like that, he likes doing it.)
