Tomorrow, September 18, 2014, is an extremely important day in Scotland. Tomorrow Scotland will go to the polls and answer this question: Should Scotland be an independent country? Two boxes: Yes or No.
People are talking about nothing else, and in fact it has been a topic of conversation in our house and most other people’s houses for months. The Dafter has been following it all with increasing interest, especially as she will be able to vote. She is well aware of the gravity of the choice, and of the momentous occasion this is. A voter turnout of over 80% is predicted. Many windows on our streets have signs in them now. Regardless of the outcome, the United Kingdom will never be quite the same, as the Westminster government is now offering increased devolved powers to the Scottish parliament if there is a No vote.
So by Friday we will know what direction our country will be taking.
Thanks to everyone for your good wishes, thoughts and prayers about the Dafter’s continuing recovery. We’re having ups and downs but the general trend is up, very thankfully.
