Monday 16 May 2011: The Great Hall
"Mr John Swinney MSP requests the pleasure of your company at a dinner to mark the visit of the Trade Development Alliance of Seattle and the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce. Great Hall, Edinburgh Castle."
Oh, go on then. Was only staying in to wash my hair anyways...
What a fantastic evening - loads of interesting, engaging and friendly folks from over the water, here to see if they can learn anything about anything from us Scots. (My contribution was sort of managing to explain to my table the relationship between the Scottish Parliament and Westminster, and the significance of the SNP's recent victory.)
Oh, and a Senior Vice President of Wells Fargo gave me an actual Official Wells Fargo Stagecoach Badge for Bella!
