Bit of a weird Twitter week for me, because for the first time I felt as if I was tweeting more for the sake of this weekly roundup than for Twitter itself. The thing is, last weekend was mine and aka_kelly
's long-planned trip to Stratford Upon Avon, so I couldn't stay up to watch the election results (just as well since we didn't end up getting a new PM - and don't get me started on that - until yesterday) because I had to be up early for the train the next day. And while the twitterverse was understandably all about the results and the hung parliament, I was off having a nice weekend away and seeing the sights, so couldn't really join in anyway. So I mostly just texted a load of stuff about Stratford as it occured to me, to have a bit of a reminder of my trip...

(At the Europeans a couple of years ago the polling station was so quiet, I've never seen people so excited to see me enter the room.)

Although the bed's on castors and now I'm wondering if it'll go hurting across the room in the middle of the night.

Having had a (perilous) shower, I'm now wondering if this room is some kind of elaborate Tudor deathtrap.

OK, so a lot of Stratford shops are named after Shakespeare characters but Iago, really? At least it's not a hanky shop.
