Sun shining, flowers nodding in a gentle breeze, birds singing. Such a beautiful April day. It must have been a day like this which inspired the line "Oh to be in England now that April's here."
It has been a day of recreation in the fullest sense of that word, lots to do but none of it pressured or a worry. Thanks to the wonders of technology there was the chance to have a catch up with family on the other side of the world. There was a moment of wonder standing under a tree with a group of people admiring the fine plumage and beautiful song of the chaffinch sitting near the top. And in between there was time to do a lttle work towards the European Parliamentary campaign - just enough to be enjoyable without being too tiring.
Fiona Hall has done more to help businesses and people in the North East than either of the other two MEPs as far as I can see and I'm really keen to se her re-elected. In the interests of fairness I tried a Google search for North East MEP and came up with only two references on the front page of results which weren't about Fiona. What do the others do with their time I wonder?
