Election Day - Victory

I'm still on cloud nine and have to say that the tension was worse than waiting for my University Finals results to plop onto the door mat!
We has a comfortable majority of almost 200 in the end, but so many times it was going one way and then the other.
A glass of bubbly and then collapse into bed - this has been a very, very long day and would not have been possible without the army of wonderful Lib Dem supporters who turned out to help. Details to follow next weeks of a thankyou party!
But the final word - for the moment - must go to the newest edition of the Whelan family. We have had a real thanksgiving today as my brother became a father for the first time and I FINALLY became an auntie! Congratulations and welcome to the world Niamh, from Auntie Fiona - or Cllr Whelan as your new cousins call me.

Congratulations and well done Fiona. I hope you are feeling as bubbly as the champagne after a good night's sleep, and that your victory will enthuse our county council group!
