First Vote

Today we cast our local election and European election votes and, for the first time, Claire was able to vote too! Our polling station was Chequer Mead, the local arts centre, and we arranged to meet Claire there in her lunch hour so that we could vote together. As I had taken a photo of Hugh when he went to cast his first vote, it was only right that I got a photo of Claire and Jon as she went to cast hers. The ballot paper for the local election had four choices and then the paper for the European elections had about 20 choices! Glad I knew who I wanted to vote for!! After we had voted we went walked over to Caffe Nero for a panini for lunch before Claire had to go back to work. Jon has just left to take a computer down to Michelle and Josh in Eastleigh, Hampshire. He will be staying overnight with them and making his way home tomorrow morning. It'll be good to get Michelle online as it makes it so much easier to keep in touch - hooray for the internet, what would we do without it now! xx

  1. Hurray for the internet is right. I've been thinking about you, but you beat me to the blog! How nice to have captured this milestone. It never occurred to me to try---another missed opportunity.
