Hallo again everyone. Well, here we are and it's Sunday once again. This will be a very busy week for hubby and I, as the local elections take place this coming Thursday, the 1st May. Eeeek! We have delivered 5,500 leaflets, and will deliver to targeted areas during the next few days.
Roger has three other Candidates standing against him, and it's always difficult to predict how things are going to turn out. Many people are so apathetic about politicians in general these days, so will they bother go turn out to even register their vote? The Coalition Government in this country is not terribly popular at the moment, even though they are doing their very best with the horrendous mess and debt that they inherited. So many people will probably register a protest vote against them. I can just hope that a lot of people will turn out for a local man who really has worked incredibly hard during the last years, supporting people, no matter what their political persuasion may be. Anyway, watch this space!
I did put the following two photos on my facebook page, when Emma and Alfred arrived from France on Friday, but I am including them especially for Shady, as I know he likes to see photos of his buddy! I said on facebook "I think Alfred is pleased to see me, but you can never tell with his sad little face!!". Several of my bloggy friends were generous and said that he looked "regal", "awesome", "stoic" etc. Emma agreed with 'stoic'. She said he is a very stoic little dog!
Today, it is the Plymouth Half Marathon, and many roads all around Plymouth Hoe and the historic Barbican will be closed off. There is always so much bad media press about young people these days, but it really is a joy to see just how many youngsters get involved with this Race, and they raise thousands and thousands of pounds for the charity of their choice. Many, many people are running on behalf of St Luke's Hospice here in Plymouth. It really is such a wonderful place, as all Hospices are.
I haven't really said very much about Kelly over the past few weeks, but she really has been very, very poorly and has been at the Hospice for three weeks now, although she is hoping to go home again on Tuesday. It is actually her birthday today - she is 41 - Emma is over there with her at the moment, but so desperately sad to think that this is the last birthday she will ever have. On top of everything else, she now has lots of blood clots in her arms, and they are really swollen, so that they can't even lift up her mobile phone anymore or keep in touch with all her friends via facebook. It would be lovely if you could still hold her in your prayers - thank you.
