  2. What a great time I had too Ray. Particularly enjoyed having a giggle with you at various different points of the event. And of course my Duncan has a personality of his own – I wouldn’t have married him otherwise!!

  3. number 34??? I hope this isnt in order!

  4. […] With so many people blogging about how great the A4Uexpo was, it seems a little boring to follow the crowd. So i thought i would look at things from another point of view… […]

  5. At least you made the list Hannah!
    Great post Ray, nice to spend some time with you again dewde.

  6. […] Befuddled Me? […]

  7. I can clock champagne at 500 paces me. Not that many other people were drinking it TBH so I thought “Right… I’m not going to let this go to waste. I’ll drink it before Ray arrives else I’ll get none!!”

  8. And another thing. Apparently there was, in fact, someone having a bit of a Frisson in the toilets at the Fox.

    I’m still unsure if this actually happened or if Hannah made it up just so I’d shut up about there being no naughty goss!!

  9. I hope this isn’t in order as you had a smoothie with Cat before me!!!

    That was some intense reading Ray!

  10. You have forgotten a huge amount on here…

    The pink pills dude and the discussion about the 4 shoes.

    The fact we all had a mini bar in our rooms (bad idea)

    The balloons in the sky bar (i never did steal one)

    Turning up drunk and late on the first day (that was me not you) and being forced to be nice to people when i just wanted to die.

    The discussion on bras…

    I should stop now, im supposed to be working

  11. hey up Ray i’ll forgive you… specially as I can’t remember speaking to you this time round ; ) Here’s to more of them eh?

  12. […] Befuddled me […]

  13. Cheers Ray

    Good to chat again.

    How come I did not get your photo???


  14. Hannah, you and your 4 shoes – classic! If only I could remember that first carnage night. On that note I’ve forgotten about the bras too.

    Jess, it’s not in any order of preference of female marketer or taste of smoothie. It was intense writing it, or rather having to think.

    Doug, where were the bandanas? Or where was I at that point?? I wasn’t in the toilets having ‘a bit of Frisson’

  15. Oh Yeah Hannah….

    102. Ray Theakston studiously looking at the ceiling as myself and Hannah Swift had a conversation during which we revealed our bra sizes, because he didn’t want to be accused of being a perv!

  16. He looked, no quarms there… He definitely looked!

  17. I see that you attend a lot of affiliate marketing conferences – would you say this is worthwhile or with them being so close together did they have similar content?
