The first thing she said was "You shouldn't have worn that dark blue shirt. Your armpits were disgustingly sweaty." It wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't thought that the shirt was rather 'Cameron' and that the AM/PM programme I'd just done had gone rather well.
I'd been a guest on today's programme for the BBC between 11.30 and 1.00 with ex-AM, Alun Pugh and Dr Laura McAllister discussing the political goings on in Cardiff Bay and Prime Minister's Questions. There were several really interesting subjects - but when I rang home to see how things were, the only subject my wife wanted to talk about was my sweaty armpits. It does make the point that if I want to be taken seriously and have people listen to the case I'm making, I really am going to have to improve my presentation.
It was interesting to chat informally amongst some of those involved in all the discussions about the future Assembly Government around Cardiff Bay today.. There is real momentum behind the Rainbow Coalition. I think that even Plaid's 'gang of four' will accept the majority view. In fact, I have quite a bit of admiration for them. I was a lot more disappointed in the interview Jill Evans, MEP and Vice President of Plaid was giving on Good Evening Wales as I was driving home. She just seems to want her party to remain in perpetual opposition. My only real doubt is the Lib Dems, none of whom I encountered in Cardiff Bay today. Well, there are only six of them. It is odd that so much influence on how Wales is governed rests with so few Lib Dem activists. Spent a long time with Darren Millar today - and I have to say that I think he is being under-rated. He could be a bit stong willed but he's going to be an influential Assembly Member, both reasonable and devolutionary.
I am frustrated by difficulty blogging at the moment. I have had so much trouble rearranging my computer access that I am still having to travel to Welshpool at night to access a computer. Still, I should be back up to speed in a few days time. I will have a new personal line at home and will order broadband tomorrow.. By the time I read all the comments on Blamerbell's and Iain Dale's blogs, its time to go home.
