A long weekend of epic proportions

Mlle Wilson here for five days AND a Join Meet? Non stop fun!

What have I been up to?

I have made lots and lots and lots of silly jokes and double entendres.

I have visited my old uni campus.

I have travelled for literally hundreds of miles around the North East of Scotland.

I have stood on the banks of Loch Ness.

I have been amazed, in a lovely way, by people’s perceptions of me.

I have realised that in certain situations I have to follow the flow rather than control it. And I am A-OK with that.

I have slept very little.

I have realised that I have to let some things go.

I have (almost) been licked by a Meatloaf tribute act.

I have found the spot where (if I ever get married), I want to get married.

I have danced crazily to ska and reggae and punk and rock, and been twirled around (don’t you just love twirling?).

I have been licked. Ewwww.

I have been reminded just how amazing my friends are.

I have had a million and one great conversations with people I love and respect and who I really appreciate having in my life.

I have been hugged. A lot. I freaking love hugging.

I have had fun.

I have done a very silly happy dance because of a sentence.

I have introduced Mlle Wilson to Flight of the Conchords.

I have made the people of Inverness smile.

I have sung songs about badgers.

I have burnt things in a cleansing ritual. With Mlle Wilson. On top of a freaking big hill.

I have drunk Jack Daniels.

I have looked at a sky that is festooned with a million brilliant stars.

I have been really happy.
