FINALLY, after months and months of endless media coverage and increasingly vitriolic debate, Referendum Day is here.
For those of you lucky enough to have missed all this, today is the day the British voters decide whether or not we stay in the European Union.
I tried, yet again, to interest my children in the issue on the way to school this morning.
"Which way would you be voting today, #3?" I asked my 7 year old.
"I'm voting for Breakfast!" she replied firmly.
#2 rolled his eyes. "It's Brexit, stupid, not Breakfast. And Daddy says you can't vote for Brexit or all your Sylvanian Families will have to be deported back to Sylvania."
At which point #3 started to cry.
I explained that Sylvania is not an actual country, and therefore not subject to EC freedom of movement legislation in any case, so #3's families of miniature bunnies, hedgehogs and badgers are perfectly safe and can carry on monopolising every available surface of her bedroom.
#2 and #3 spent the rest of the journey glaring at each other aggressively. It was like having David Cameron and Boris Johnson in the back seat.
I spent much of my childhood living in Brussels, so I've always felt European rather than just British.
I also believe that our children, growing up attached by their umbilical cords to the world wide web, see themselves - quite rightly - as global citizens. I think we should be building bridges, not walls.
So, I'm off to stick my cross in the REMAIN box, and then I'm going to look forward to talking about SOMETHING ELSE for a change.
Whichever way you're voting today, have a great one and I'll see you on the other side....
