The election is over and I'm back at work, with a real sense of limbo - reflecting the mood of Scottish politics at the moment I suppose.

As a member of a political party work is always ongoing, but we have all been in a mode of ever-intensifying overdrive over the last year. And it's hard to let go!

I'm still in campaign mode, and Jamie is totally bemused by the fact that I can't just relax, rather than literally burst with ideas for the next election every five minutes! After all, he's the one that now has to knuckle down and work harder than ever in his new role. I should be getting back to some kind of normality now that the election is over.

As Jamie has now been elected as an MSP, he has a very exciting and challenging time ahead of him over the next few years. I'm looking forward to supporting him in his new role, and exploring even more ways that I can help to campaign for independence.

I've shadowed Jamie throughout the election campaign, and I'm very proud of him. He will make an excellent MSP. And I can't wait to see what he is able to achieve over the next few years for the people he now represents - I'm sure he will make them every bit as proud as I am. :o)

thank god its not just me, I was pacing the flat over the weekend because I have nothing to do. I feel like I am skiving.

I think we need a support group, "my name is Burnie and I'm an electionaholic"
