Election Day - Victory

WE WON!!
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!
