4 More Years – hallelujah! Woke up at 6a.m. to listen to the acceptance speech… Mum has been very under the weather for the past week or so, a bad cold that has really taken its toll (her breathing is terrible, and she still has a racking cough), but the election result has bucked her up no end – mind you, she always said he would win, she called it… I can’t help thinking there must have been a moment late last night, when he realised that he was actually going to win, that Obama had a heart sink moment – I mean who in their right mind would want his job? Especially now… the knives will be out… but thank the gods he does want to do it….
