Thursday 6th May
When I got home this afternoon I went round to the church hall to vote. We had council elections here as well as the general election. This year everything has felt very centralised and all about voting for the prime minister. Funnily enough when I went to the polling station I wasn't able to vote for who I thought should be prime minister but instead had to vote for the person I wanted as my constituency MP.
The election campaign has seemed to be very male dominated, not totally surprising with three male party leaders but most of the commentators and those invited to take part in discussions have been male too.
We've just lit the fire and opened a bottle of wine and are planning to watch the election results; I guess it will be a long night...
