Sounds good, especially the backup bit - you can never have too many backups.

Meanwhile, I have just voted by post for the first time in my life. It's an odd feeling: there's none of the familiar and reassuring ritual of the polling station: having my name checked and a ballot paper issued, marking my vote with a stubby little pencil on a string, and then putting the ballot paper in the ballot box. Instead, I get to sit at home and do it all at the same desk as I am now typing this! It also means I'm relying on Royal Mail as an essential component of the process, which doesn't entirely fill me with joy.

The other parts of the democratic process continue unabated: once again I've spent a good part of my day pushing LibDem leaflets through letterboxes. Aside from the hailstorm, it's been quite pleasant.

I'm now in Norfolk for a couple of days; I was visited by my sister for the last couple which was nice, we visited Winterbourne House (which is attached to the University) and also cleaned my house a lot! Going to a folk gig with parents tomorrow, then back on Monday.

What are haters hating?

Folk gig was good, was the band's farewell tour though so last time I'll see them which is a shame.

Sorry :(

Are you graduating this year? And will you be in a less remote part of the UK afterwards?

Hey Shetland is amazing it's like the only place my political party can reliably win in Scotland any more.

I mean, it is one of the lowest constituency populations in the UK, so you're not wholly wrong.
