Woke up to find the world had turned white. There was a thick layer of snow everywhere. Does this mean I don't have to go? I am sure I have a sore throat anyway.
I tried this line out on various people. No one seemed the slightest bit impressed.
Definitely feeling anxious about the whole venture today.
It helps to remember the touching notes I have received from some of my pensioners enclosing small sums of sponsorship which they can hardly afford.
And today I have sewn a St Christopher into my jacket which has been lent me by one of my constituents. It belonged to her mother and is well thumbed. Such acts of kindness give me a real lift.
