I posted my proxy vote application this morning. I’ll be away in London on election day, so Kate will be voting for me.

Andrew and I did the first half of the weekend’s Frogmarch food shop this evening. Morrisons was oddly quiet at 9pm. Normally for Frogmarch we get a Tesco grocery delivery to the house we’ve rented for the weekend, but they didn’t want to deliver to rural Northumbria, so we had to do the shopping the old-fashioned way. We still have fridge and freezer stuff to get, but the bulk of the shop is done. Looking forward to a weekend of cooking!

I still need to get party food for our election-night party, but I’ll do that after work tomorrow. Kate and I will probably go and vote early tomorrow morning, so we can take Beth with us before she goes to school. I think she’ll enjoy seeing the process. Voting is at the Boys’ Brigade Hall next to the burn; I still have negative memories of the place from the years of living in a flat in Greenside Court and hearing bagpipe practice in their car park on otherwise pleasant summer evenings.

The BBC Parliament channel is showing all fifteen hours of the BBC’s 1979 election night coverage today. It started at 9am, should be another hour or so before the results start tumbling in. I wonder who will win?

1979 was David Dimbleby’s first election broadcast as anchor; doesn’t he look young? I wonder if he imagined that he would be anchoring elections for the rest of his working life.

I can’t watch it now because I’m working today, but I’ll record it and it should last me all week. Hmm. Not so sure that Kate will be enthused, though.
