David Cameron was in cheerful mood as he mingled among the Welsh party faithful last night at a conference reception.
There was just the one Gavin and Stacey Joke and just the one teasing Assembly group leader Nick Bourne after his recent shower accident (he's still bearing the scars, prompting his leader to wonder whether he'd been fighting with shadow Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan again).
The overall message was one that's already become a familiar one: "no complacency".
He told representatives they must not give voters a chance to turn their back on the party again. So there's a clampdown on MEP expenses and MPs are told to publish full details of their own claims.
"Get rid of the John Lewis list, get rid of the plasma screen TVs," said Mr Cameron.
