history has been made

with one comment

Today has been momentous; history has been made.

It was an impressive victory – not just for one person but for many.

It was a time when I realised that there had been a mandate for change – that the future might be very different. Surely things won’t be the same again. The tide has turned and it cannot be go back.

The victory was sweet and I am hoping that this taste of honey may last.

Oh yes, Barack Obama has won the presidential elections, but that is not what I am talking about here. The victory that was so sweet for me is this: that my children allowed me to listen – for a whole morning before they were packed off to school – to Radio 4.

Not once did they ask for Radio 1 instead.

Ah, the future is truly looking good…

  1. Oj Jayne, I so empathise!! A friend of mine said: “Weren’t you watching Barack yesterday?” How could I tell him that I had given up? I DID watch him on the 7am news but I had such a fight with Arch who wanted to watch Roary the Racing Car that I couldn’t be bothered to repeat the battle any more times that day.
