I am told that my speech at Alex and Laura's wedding went down well. It was nerve-wracking, but, as with all my favourite appearances, it was 'emergent' and there was plenty of crowd participation.

Here is how I wrote it in a frenzy of messy random thoughts in advance. Sometimes I wish I was more organised, prepared, like those people who work like that. Sometimes I'm happy that my brain is like a stubborn partner in my life.

It's weird standing up in front of people. I think some people do it because they actually really like being in front of people being listened to, and others do it to prove to themselves that they can do something that they naturally don't really want to do (or 'towards'' vs "away" in psycho-therapy spiel).

I have also been told it's something to do with having 'air' sign in your make-up - and many people who do it also like climbing... Anyway - whatever... but I just got my new climbing harness and shoes which is very exciting, and Dan and I are going on an outdoor climbing course soon - fantastic. Expect pictures of flying academics.
