1)Thank you #saffronwalden constituency for re-electing me with an increased majority and putting your faith in me and the @conservatives 2)Thank you to my campaign team and supporters for such a brilliant job and all your support especially just after I had my baby and wasn’t in any fit state to campaign and 3) THANK YOU to my wonderful husband and beautiful children who don’t see as much of me as they should do (even during maternity leave) because of the job I chose. I am a very lucky woman indeed! ❤️
