I spent yesterday at a leisure centre awaiting news of exciting political developments. Unfortuately, I made the mistake of diving into the pool at Putney when the action was elsewhere.
Fortunately, I've been kept up to date via an e-mailed statement from Kirsty Williams herself.
"The Liberal Democrat's [sic]," she wrote, "have had a great year of transformation with changes to key leadership posts across the Union."
It may not be entirely re-assuring that the leadership favourite is currently the Welsh Lib Dems' spokeswoman on education.
