It is now 2 days before we go to cast our vote Yes or No to the question: "Should Scotland be an independent country?"
There is a lot in the press and television about the topic ... and I gather, from communication I get from friends abroad, it is the same.
The polls show that the mood of people who are preparing to vote is pretty well split down the middle, i.e. 50-50. The Queen made a statement yesterday "Think carefully."
Our polling cards on the desk in the hall.
What are Himself and I voting? "No"
Whatever the outcome it will (a) be a close one and (b) we will just have to go with it.
The media has been full of really funny stuff relating to the referendum. Last week 3 politicians flew north to Scotland to whip up the No vote,. There was a really funny cartoon in the (Edinburgh) Scotsman newspaper. It showed a Scottish cartoon character holding out his hand and in it were the 3 politicians from London (representing the 3 main UK political parties). The cartoon heading read "Wee sleekit cowerin', tim'rous beasties .... Oh what a panic's in thy breastie!" Clever!
This' ballot paper' as been doing the rounds. I had a go at cobbling this together using Photoshop.
Meanwhile, it's time to prepare for visitors who are making a special trip from France to be here for the day of voting.
