After another tiring week - busy at work, not least because of the changes in government, governors and council meetings -a tiring 'weekend away' so far.
A pleasant enough train journey to Cornwall on Friday afternoon, slightly spoiled by having work to do on the way. Then a little bit of campaigning with Steve before working on his hustings speech until late at night.
Steve is my former Fortis Green ward colleague from his few years in London before going home to Cornwall. He is hoping to be selected as the Lib Dem Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the new constituency of St.Austell and Newquay.
This morning the first hustings were in St.Austell and we have just finished the second (and final) hustings in Newquay. The turnout from members has been very impressive and the debates have been excellent. The other two candidates are both clearly very good too, so I'm confident we will win the seat at the next election.
The only downside is that, due to the postal strike, the count is being delayed until Wednesday - so the three candidates have some restless nights ahead.
But it does mean the 'work' is over for the weekend and it's time to enjoy a Cornish pint.
