from the madness.

Some pictures from the Join Meet in Inverness at the weekend (with thanks to Mlle Wilson and The Daddy for the pics). Let the goofiness ensue.... We did the traditional RAoK (Random Acts of Kindness) challenge around the city; visited the cathedral (on of the spiritual homes of Join Me); and then (naturally!) went out to the pub and a club. A great weekend with some awesome folk.

Mlle Wilson, M and Mum W at the start of our RAoK challenge. Our challenge was to make as many people smile in an hour as possible...using any means necessary....

The rest of my awesome RAoK team. And a man in a kilt!

Blowing bubbles in the city centre.

Mr H makes a seagull smile.

Siobhan offers the good people of Inverness some encouragement.

The Joinvernes5 crew on the steps of the cathedral.

With Greg, the awesome storyteller.

A bit of pointy dancing in the pub. I do love to pointy dance :-).

Mlle Wilson and I cheese it for the camera.

Mum W and the Daddy in the club. I love this picture - they both look so happy!

Mlle Wilson and I with the Meatloaf tribute act we saw. He was amazing!

Mr H, Mlle Wilson and I cut a rug in the club.

Sunday was all about the laidbackness. Here's Mlle Wilson on the shore of Loch Ness, where we had a lovely barbeque and picnic. A perfect ending to a lovely, chilled meet.

Hope you enjoyed the pics!
