All over the Internet people have been losing their shit over Donald Trump becoming the 45th President of the USA.
Today, I wore my Presidential shirt, which has now lived through three Presidents, and went for a long drive to see the sea.
We are currently reorganising the house and I needed to get away for a few hours to plan the next week's activities and work out a timetable of removing, moving and replacing. I even happened to find an art gallery by the sea to visit.
The sea was angry today, roiling and smashing and keeping most sensible people on the sand. Maybe it felt like it had been Trumped.
I've signed up to the Obama Foundation and Barack sent me an email today. It really is going to be OK. Trump is an old man, his ideas are old. There are plenty of people to hold him to account. We were all going to die of a nuclear holocaust in the 1980s and it didn't happen. I don't think it will happen now. I think many people will be terrified and upset and angry, but if my shirt can outlive three presidential incumbents, there's hope for the world.
