I hadn't planned to watch the election outcome, expecting a kind of inevitability.
Then the exit poll appeared and it looked as if everything was about to go sideways. Time to break open the chocolate chip cookies and milk.
Now we have a classic 'Ready, Fire, Aim' situation from Brexit and a shonky mayday attempt to salvage a government, probably with the DUP. All the while alternative Tory power monkeys are plotting her replacement.
In another change of direction, May won't follow what she said in her tweet a couple of weeks ago.
At the moment no-one knows what is going to happen next so the telly channels are all running either the Kensington and Chelsea recounts or myriad talking heads saying there will be a period of uncertainty.
So not stable and not strong then?
Teresa May is still hiding in Downing Street although is being told by her party to go to see the Queen at 12:30. I can't imagine Her Majesty being very amused by this turn of events.
Maybe it is time to revoke the Article 50 trigger to get some breathing space?
