I am so very behind on posting new entries right now. Life is happening too fast and work deadlines have suddenly appeared and are making alarming whooshing sounds.

However, I wanted to note that this week, I have passed a new milestone in political activism: I have become a candidate for the local council elections in the UK. I only did it because the organiser of my local party was very persistent, and I do not expect to win or even come second, as I won't be doing any campaigning. But it was still a big deal for me to put myself out there, to fill out the paperwork and get the necessary constituent signatures (TBF, aforementioned local party doyenne got most of the signatures), even if it's just to be a paper candidate. So. Er. Go me?

Er, panic and alarm as I frantically work out how I'm going to do both jobs...

Ha! Well, at least you'd consider doing it. I think that's great.

Thank you! It took a surprisingly long time to do/check over. There seemed to be a lot of repetition of information as well. I guess that's to deter "joke" candidacy?
