The inauguration of the Waterton Government.


Times are slow in Waterton, which is why we sometimes go a little stir crazy and entertain ourselves in odd ways. This is how the Waterton Government was created. Last week we held an inauguration ceremony (it was supposed to be on the 20th January, the day all great Governments began, but then our Government headquarters...burnt down). I am the Secretary General. This is a photo of me and Al, one of my favourite people in Waterton (he's the Governor General). He runs one of the "other" hotels in Waterton. He was the one we spent Christmas with. Al is a celebrity in Waterton, he's been here ten years and knows everybody and is a brilliant person (if a little cheeky sometimes). This is me, being sworn in to Government at the bar in our "new" hotel. We had a lovely meal and discussed "Government issues" (read: local gossip).

In other news: I think I am going to get all my hair cut off again tomorrow. What do you think? Look how long it's got!

In other, other news: I look a bit fat in that photo but it's a facade...I think my t-shirt is just bunched up. I am eating very well and doing a lot of exercise, so don't be fooled into thinking that I have fallen prey to the "living-abroad-and-thus-doubling-your-weight" trap that was my downfall in Finland.
