Leaflet expansion - sure sign of campaign fever
I am no stranger to the phenomenon myself of late, but that's more to do with a desire for exercise and the mild evenings than any campaign madness. Now though we're all at it, a sure sign that lections may be looming. Where once it was OK to go out as a group only at the weekends, now my Friday night is gone, and next week Thursday as well!
All of this is merely a prelude of course to the nightly activities of April - a slow ratcheting up of the pace, rather like that stretching machine from the film "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang." And tonight saw us in Holyrood again, taking in the Heaton Street area and the houses near the Metrolink line off Heywood Road.
We'll be back out tomorrow at lunchtime and again at teatime. But that's on Saturday, so it won't feel quite so strange!
