My batteries have been recharged over Christmas, though I now (as is usually the case after flying back) have a bad dose of jet lag. It is still very cold here. I came home only to find I needed to replace the battery in my car.
When I returned, I was sad to read of the death of the Labour MP, David Taylor. I never met him but he was regularly speaking in Parliament and was clearly not only independent but one of those rare politicians who were effective as both a Constituency MP and Parliamentarian. I met the Conservative Candidate in the constituency at a Best Practice weekend a while ago and he was very complimentary about him.
I wish everyone the very best for 2010!
