WOKE up on Wednesday morning with a satisfying Ready Brek glow all around me.
It took that long for it to dawn on me what we've done. Wrexham in a big final for the first time, in a competition we've got a good chance of winning - at the Millennium Stadium to boot!
I just couldn't get excited the night before, sure we'd conspire to throw such a fantastic chance away. But fair play to Denis Smith and the boys, they were well-organised and never looked like losing to Oldham.
We dominated and surely deserved to win, with young Mark Jones continuing to show up well and Andy Holt carrying on his one-man crusade for player of the season. There were grown men nearly in tears at the final whistle, so pleased to be able to see the Dragons make it.
Tomorrow the Latics will come to defend and it's up to the same people who shined on Tuesday to open them up again. Everyone knows draws are no good at this stage and I'd hate to enjoy a great day in Cardiff only for us to taste relegation soon after.
Of course, every cloud has a jet-black lining these days at Cae Raes. On the day we reach the LDV Vans final, our beloved owner Alex Hamilton all but ends Andy Smith's interest in buying the club.
What a waste of time that has been then. Almost as if, with the bulldozers booked for July, that was the plan all along.
Now I've always had this feeling that Hamilton won't sell and that something will always crop up to prevent the sale. But the word is that the guy will let Wrexham go, if someone can come up with the cash.
It's just sad that when it comes to finding a buyer, whatever we do on the pitch won't make a blind bit of difference. Getting to the LDV final is all well and good, but it doesn't matter if we're in the Premiership or Nationwide North, every potential buyer is after one thing - the land..
That's why Hamilton stands to make 10 times his money and still have property developers waiting to pounce and milk that little bit more.
This has been a great week for Wrexham. I just hope this isn't our first and last big final.
